Another iteration of our collaborative project, Open Air Mattress Talks, will be taking place during Herberger Institute Day on Oct. 12. We will be hosting one session from 12-1pm and another from 130-230pm. Here's a brief summary of the event:
"In our lives as students, artists and activists, our mattresses have been a place of comfort and rest, of emergent sexual exploration, and sometimes, of violence. We aim to create a safe space to participate, listen, talk, collaborate, laugh and think about these issues..." - project co-designers.
The dialogue will begin with an excerpt from the play With Each Other. Participants will then use their bodies and minds to break down boundaries and have an open conversation about consent and sexual violence prevention on campus. Join us!

presentation at fate conference in kansas city, mo
APRIL 6, 2017
On Thursday, April 6 from 4-5:30 I get to present on the Transitions panel at the FATE conference in Kansas City. I'll be talking about my experience of having only one student in my 2D class last semester and the mobile curriculum that emerged. This was made possible through a travel grant from ASU's HIDA as well as the School of Art.
Transitions Session Abstract: Foundations courses are increasingly taught by educators that are graduate students, new adjunct professors and new-hires at institutions with curricula that diverge widely from institution to institution. While graduate students must juggle the challenges of being both students and educators with less experience to back them, adjunct professors too, find themselves less supported and without reliable mentors. How can graduate students and first-time foundations educators leverage their situations to create pedagogy and classroom situations that create excitement from uncertainty? How can full-time faculty provide better mentorship and resources for first-time foundations educators? Does experience prevail or can freshness lead to innovation? In this session, we will hear from newcomers and experienced educators in transitional situations considering the term transition broadly.
Session Chair: Stacy Isenbarger, University of Idaho

AUGUST 1, 2016
I'm excited to be a fellow at Mildred's Lane for a week this summer to attend the Attention Lab: Order of the Third Bird session. I'll be traveling to Narrowsburg, NY through a travel grant from the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) and a tuition grant from ASU's School of Art.
Description of the session: "Indiscreet associates of The Order of the Third Bird will continue their investigations into experimental protocols of Practical Aesthesis and methods of Sustained Attention. The Attention Lab is part guerrilla seminar and part meditative and kinetic practicum. A discipline of the senses is pursued. Beginning with available traditions and protocols of the Order, the group's aim will be to develop and test new experimental practices of attention."
