January-May 2020: Culturing Nature Class

At the College, Yang and Donner are teaching a studio art module called, Culturing Nature: Gardens in Ecological Art in which students are invited to engage with ecology as a starting point for creative research. Through a multi-sensory approach, students interact with gardens on and off-campus, experimenting with drawing, photography and multimedia projects as ways to observe, represent and imagine the ways humans relate to the living world in an age of environmental urgency.

The artists have also worked with community members at the Sky Garden@Jurong Central where they conducted interviews with local urban gardeners and did sound recordings of the garden together with students.
