On the Ceiling is an exhibition of student work created as a visual response project, inspired by the novel Au Plafond (On the Ceiling) by Éric Chevillard. The images will be on display throughout Innovation Forum week from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., in North Creek Events Center (NCEC).
Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to visit. All are also invited to meet the artists and learn more about the project at a presentation on Tuesday, February 14, 1:30-3 p.m., also in NCEC
About the project:
In the novel, one of the distinguishing features of the main character is that he wears a chair upside-down on his head -- both an absurdist gesture and a creative horizon from which the story itself unfolds.
For the project, students were challenged to take a picture of someone wearing a chair, incorporating the spirit of engagement into the process. The intent was to initiate dialogue among participants – as a space for whimsical speculation and creative rethinking of performance and representation.
