Time-based art and “theater” more specifically is a perfect manipulator of experience. Many creators of time-based art look for the “universal.” In this course we will explore the science behind what we all have in common beyond shared-experience: brains. What happens in the minds of all truly happens. How can we use art to make our brains experience the same things? And what experiences can we curate for our brains based on science? Show don’t tell. How can art take place in the room in front of us? How do we experience a performance rather than just “watch” it.
