CORE 003 SC - Bodies in Motion: Representation and Simulation
This course departs from Aristotle's dictum that, "to be ignorant of motion is to be ignorant of nature." Through readings, screenings, and museum visits, we will explore how the movement of human and non-human bodies has been understood historically, and experiment with contemporary methods of representing, simulating, and capturing bodies in motion used in the arts, sciences, and humanities. Turning to sport and dance, we will ask: what are the aesthetics, politics, and economies of motion and its apparent opposites: stillness, rest, sleep? In our ever more carefully tracked world, what does motion mean and how is it made meaningful?
