  • Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker living in South Florida. Her video works and performances have been premiered at galleries and museums internationally such as MoMA, MoCA:NoMi, BAM, Bass Museum, the Contemporary Museum of Montreal with the Montreal Biennial (2014) and film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, and the New York Film Festival. She was recently featured in Art Papers, ArtNews and Art Forum discussing identity, Internet and her artistic practices and influences.
  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory. 
     
  • The Architecture/Landscape/Interiors Department at Otis College of Art and Design is pleased to announce the George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture REDUX.4 by IÑAKI ÁBALOS

General Questions

How do I create my Learning e-Portfolio?

For all incoming students, you will create your Learning ePortfolio during your Orientation/Registration process. 
 

What is appropriate content to put into my Learning e-Portfolio?

Your Learning ePortfolio is a space for you to reflect on your academic experience. You should aim to move beyond superficial reactions such as "I like" or "don't like" in favor of more critical and thoughtful responses. Think more about evaluating the “why” or “how”.
 
You control the content of your Learning ePortfolio, but this is a space for critical reflection. It is not an appropriate space to complain or rant about faculty, your courses, or friends/classmates.
 

Who can see my Learning e-Portfolio?

You determine who can view your Learning ePortfolio.
 

Technical Questions

How do I update or make changes to my Learning e-Portfolio?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

What happens to my Learning e-Portfolio after I graduate?

Your Learning ePortfolio will remain active as part of O-Space after you graduate from Otis.
 

What if I want to take my Learning ePortfolio after I graduate and re-launch it in a different domain?

You can export the e-portfolio as a folder of HTML files including the original versions of any uploaded media. Go to the Portfolio Tools tab and click on the Download button. Save the zipped folder to your computer and then extract the files. Each HTML page includes the main content as well as the sidebar, header, footer and comments. Uploaded media, including the originals, are located in the files subfolder.
ePortfolio Download Option
 
 

How much space do I have on my Learning e-Portfolio?

There is no space restriction. However, uploaded media cannot be larger that 12MB. Images that are smaller are preferred since they will load much quicker.
 

How do I edit text and add pictures/graphics?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

If my images are too large, how do I resize them?

Use an image processing program, such as Photoshop, and save the image as a JPG. The maximum file size is 12 MB, though smaller files will load much more quickly. Images that are wider than 500 px will be automatically resized when uploaded via the Image/Video/Audio module.
 

How do I add links or embed video into my Learning e-Portfolio?

See the step-by-step guides for more specific information.
 

Training and Support Questions

Are there training sessions to help me with my Learning e-Portfolio?

Support is always available in the Liberal Arts and Sciences Department, Library and SRC. When working online, go to the "Help" section within your own Learning ePortfolio.

Where can I work on my Learning e-Portfolio?

Since your Learning Portfolio is web-based, you can access it from any networked computer. You can access O-Space from home or on any of the available computer labs at Otis in addition to the computers in the Labs, Library and SRC.
 
If you are working in the Library or SRC on your Learning ePortfolio, there will be staff on site to help you with any questions you may have.
