This class will be an exploration of the notion of ‘limbic resonance’, the scientific term for the unspoken communication that occurs between mammals in physical contact with one another.
Taking form as a Skype chat with the teacher speaking from Ireland, the class itself challenges the possibilities of non-present communication. Can we replicate the experience of presence virtually? Using methods of anecdote, meditation and video trickery, the class will play with notions of embodiment and physicality, ultimately questioning whether true connection can be created through technology.
Also happening that week at UCSD:
KCDC All Corners Internet Conversation series.
Tuesday, October 25th 10:30-12:00, Visual Arts Facilities Performance Space.
