APPPHYS 10AX: The Expressive Vessel: An Immersive Introduction to Clay

Students will learn to make and to analyze functional ceramic forms, with a focus on wheel-thrown pottery. Studio time will be dedicated to the acquisition and refinement of shaping, marking/glazing and finishing skills; supplementary lectures and discussions will be used to explore the aesthetic range of contemporary studio ceramics as well as major historical traditions in clay. No prior experience is necessary, but instructors will work individually with students at all levels of ability to make this Arts Intensive experience both challenging and rewarding. Each student will produce functional ware (e.g. dishes, cups, vases, et cetera) suitable for use and display and will give a final class presentation on a selection of their most personally expressive work.

ARTSINST 10AX: Tiny Eco House for Artists - Social Practice, Design / Build

Guest artist, David Szlasa will work with students to build a mobile art studio for use on Stanford campus. Students would then curate a program to implement in the studio, which will be placed in White Plaza during Fall Quarter of 2015. Longer term, the studio will be a presence at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve as a venue for artists engaging with the natural environment and Stanford community.nThe studio structure is built from salvaged materials largely from scrap material available at the Jasper Ridge maintenance site. We intend that Jasper Ridge will be the home for the mobile studio after this initial build and campus intervention, so the use of scrap from the preserve would be a wonderful link between the land and the art. nStudents will explore four major themes: n1. Art and design as social practice and community engagement, including curatorial practice and public programming as civic engagementn2. Sustainable construction and design from theory to practicen3. Scalability in design and implementation, theorizing a mobile national arts residency program. n4. Developing a dialogue around arts and environmental research

Initial classwork will include visual writing exercises, DSLR cinematography instruction, script work, and basic fiction film production. Students will continue on in groups of three to develop, film, edit, and critique 2-3 minute narrative films based on a shared class theme or narrative premise. This course is truly INTENSIVE and requires a significant amount of work (including nights and weekends) outside of class and daily deadlines for submission of creative work.

ME 10AX: Design Thinking and the Art of Innovation

Design Thinking and the Art of Innovation is a hands-on seminar that introduces students to the multi-disciplinary practice of product, service, and experience design through the lenses of both art and engineering. A project-based, studio-driven class promises a deep dive into Design Thinking, Stanford's unique approach to problem finding and problem solving. Along with a survey of tools such as need finding and ethnography, structured brainstorming, rapid prototyping, visual communication, and story-telling, the class will include thought provoking and inspirational field trips to San Francisco's MOMA and other Bay Area museums, The San Francisco Ferry Building, and IDEO, the internationally renowned design and innovation firm headquartered in Palo Alto.nThis course is designed to introduce students to cutting edge techniques and processes used in the field of design. Through emphasis on design problems where aesthetics, technology, human behavior, and business needs overlap, students will both increase visual literacy and develop creative competence. The course provides an overview of contemporary professional design practice and exposes students to the world of design and the "wicked problems" that are the grist for the mill of design work.

MUSIC 10AX: Science of Sound

Science of Sound will explore sound and sound-related technology from the perspectives of mathematics, physics, and acoustics. Scientists and engineers will have a chance to apply their technical knowledge to the field of music while musicians will learn how sound behaves physically and how it can be recorded, processed, and reproduced. Using the newly opened Bing Concert Hall as a focal point, we will study the science of sound recording, room acoustics, and multi-channel mixing and playback. Students will use what they learn to create short multi-channel compositions using special techniques to place sounds spatially. These pieces will be performed during the annual outdoor Summer CCRMA Transitions concert and again during the Fall 2014 CCRMA concert at Bing Concert Hall. We will use the textbook by Jay Kadis entitled Science of Sound Recording as our primary text and incorporate plenty of hands-on experience with sound equipment and electronics.
