The Living Palimpsest
Visual Art, Performance
Thrown unprepared by the Covid-19 pandemic into an online class halfway through the Spring 2020 semester, the Poetics Lab students rethought their collaborative play/project ideas to work online. We were inspired by what turned out to be possible - such as by the living palimpsest that emerged from Matt Loudon's collaborative collage exercise (using the Google Jamboard app). Participants were students Madison Burger, Jialun Cao, Hao Chen, Seth Crider, Eyal Lerman, Matt, Zheng Yi Ren, Toni Shi, Noah Simon, Mahzad Sohelli, Sixuan Tong, and professors Duncan Hamilton and Ira Livingston.
