Breaking Boundaries with Emily Bivens
"Breaking Boundaries" with Emily Bivens
"The Space Between: Animate/Inanimate, Alive/Dead, Animal/Human"

This lecture features Professor Bivens's original artwork created from video, animation, sound, and sculpture. This work explores documents that pose a quandary about our relationship to the natural world, and, on another level, our relationship to ourselves. Investigating a natural phenomenon such as the calcium-rich diet of opossums or the homing ability of pigeons, or historical documents such as George Washington's Rules of Civility or Darwin's travel journals, the projects pose questions about lived political, social, or psychological spaces that are situated in liminal or "between" spaces and boundaries--such as the distrust of women in power, the long-lasting effects of invisible labor, and the effect of being rendered mute or put into a category of unrepresentability. Who lives in "the between," and how can art help us to ask, and answer, that question?
