Wintersession infosession | Australia: Witness Tree Project
Partnering with University of South Australia, RISD’s long-standing Witness Tree Project will travel for Wintersession 2020 to Adelaide, Australia, to explore changing indigenous and settler conceptions of place, land and memory and their effects on the environment. In particular, the course’s joint seminar and studio work will focus on selected trees of South Australia, which stand as historical witnesses to these changes. Co-led by Dale Broholm (Senior Critic, Furniture Design) & Daniel Cavicchi (Vice Provost + Professor, History, Philosophy, and the Social Sciences), with on-site instruction by Peter Walker (Program Director: Masters of Design, School of Art, Architecture and Design University of South Australia).
