2010 Lecture : David Stephenson : 28 September @ 7:00PM in English LH001

David Stephenson is an internationally known Tasmanian Photographer of projects that explore ideas of Time, Culture, Nature, and a contemporary response to notions about the Sublime. HIs photographs of culturally impacted wilderness areas, abstract star tracings in night skies, and looking straight up up at domes in architectural spaces around the world, all pose questions about visions of heaven and the human relationship to larger patterns of existence.

This lecture is sponsored by the School of Art as part of the joint series Landscape as Knowledge. Organized by the faculty of the School of Art in collaboration with faculty from the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University, and receiving major support from the Ryla T. and John F. Lott Endowment for Excellence in the Visual Arts and the College of Architecture, Landscape as Knowledge will present a year-long series of public lectures, conversations and events to examine embodied intelligence within the augmented environment.

A multidisciplinary approach will investigate how we see, conceive, and depict the earth; and what we find or do on it. Artists, art historians, and scholars from various disciplines will question how both our landscape and we ourselves are continually shaped and reshaped by an array of natural and cultural processes. Rick Dingus, professor in photography, Dr. Jorgelina Orfila, assistant professor in art history, Dr. Carolyn Tate, professor in art history, and Chris Taylor, assistant professor in architecture are the core collaborating faculty who will organize the year of events.

Additional support for Landscape as Knowledge comes from Land Arts of the American West and Landmark Arts in the School of Art, which receives generous support from the Helen Jones Foundation, The CH Foundation, and Cultural Activities Fees administered through the College of Visual & Performing Arts.
