Troy, NY – Transart MFA candidate Laurel Terlesky will present her practice and research at the 2nd Annual International Conference on Deep Listening at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center on July 11, 2014.
The Deep Listening conference provides artists, educators, and researchers an opportunity to creatively share ideas related to the practice, philosophy and science of Deep Listening. Developed by composer and educator Pauline Oliveros over 40 years ago, Deep Listening is an embodied meditative practice of enhancing one’s attention to listening that has evolved organically through performances, workshops and retreats.
This year’s Deep Listening conference, devoted to art and science, features Terlesky’s poster and installation presentation “Intersubjectivity of Touch: Media-assisted Sculptures as Locations for Tacit Knowledge,” which will put forward the artist’s practice-led research on communication through touch.
Laurel Terlesky is an interdisciplinary Canadian artist and educator. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Victoria (1999) and will earn a MFA degree with Transart this summer. Terlesky’s works are presented on screen — television, large-scale projection, and the internet — and in exhibitions throughout North America.
The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center is a multi-venue arts center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.
