Description/Abstract

A 5 x 5 Chimeras event featuring: Theodore Brown, Benjamin Farnsworth, Molly Hunker, Jonathan Louie, Kyle Miller, Anne Munly, and David Shanks.

Additional Information

Discussion will draw upon some of the themes explored in the recent faculty works exhibition ‘5x5 Chimeras’, currently on display in Slocum Hall’s Marble Room. The first wave of exhibition participants created an initial set of five images by offering fresh readings of Syracuse poet Hayden Carruth’s poem The Wreck of the Circus Train. Subsequent waves of participants adopted a previously produced image (or series of images) as a point of departure for their own efforts at translation.

Making use of the lively PechaKucha format, the panel hopes to address a selection of the sorts of architectural game capable of being uncovered in a range of contemporary architectural practices, with a view to unpacking a little of the discourse around the real, the authentic, and the playful.
