Class trip

ilikenemesis:

Last Saturday we went with the class for a trip to Jason Krugman’s studio located in the Navy Yard in Brooklyn.

Jason’s LEDs piece

Jim Campbell is a contemporary San Francisco based artist who primarily works with LED light installations.

We went to see his exhibition in the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery

The artist build LED screens as made of individual pixels and later lets the computer know where each pixel is located to later project a video on the fascinating light structures 

Very cool! What class was the trip for?

SO MANY QUESTIONS

SLAC is happy to help! However:

- If you’re looking for personal opinions, I would really direct your questions to one of the many people offering answers to prospective students. You can find them by checking the Sarah Lawrence tag.

- I’m happy to answer all questions, but more technical stuff is where I can really help. For the qualitative stuff, I think it’s better to get answers from a student who’s putting their name/face to the answer :)

Is the gender gap as noticeable as some people make it out to be??

Noticeable? Hmm. Well it is what it is. Somewhere between 30:70 and 40:60 (male/female) is certainly a hefty gap that is going to show. However, my personal opinion is that the gap isn’t really noticeable when you’re walking around campus, or even hanging out with friends. I’ve noticed it much more often when I’ve consistently had classes with only one man or no men in them. 

So can you only take a certain never of art courses every year? Or is it through your whole time at the college?

It’s generally frowned upon that people take the same kind of course at the same time. But lots of people take 2 writing courses or 2 art courses at the same time. 

However, the strict limit comes to your whole time at the college. You are allowed a certain maximum of creative arts credits. This limit exists for all different areas of study like Science/Math, Language/Literature, and Social Sciences. All of this will be made extremely clear throughout the Registration process. 

Can students help design admissions materials (like the post cards, pamphlets etc. that prospective students get in the mail to persuade them to apply to SLC)

I don’t believe they work on the actual design, but:

-Students can work in the Office of Admissions as tour guides, senior interviewers, and lots of other cool stuff! So I’m sure they can provide their input on material.

-Students can work for Publications, which designs the material, so they can give their input that way too :)

mommysack11:

WOAH PEOPLE HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS AND DEFENSE MECHANISMS.
BUT WE AREN’T STRONG.

IF YOU WANNA BE STRONG YOU NEED TO HANG OUT WITH YOUR FEELINGS AND SAY HEY FEELINGS YOU’RE OKAY WE CAN DO WHATEVER WE WANT.

THEN BOOM. YOU WIN AT LIFE!
