Art Practice as Prosthetic Visuality
Garoian, Charles R.
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v51 n2 p176-188 Win 2010
In this lecture I explore and conceptualize the anomalous spaces of perception and memory in art practice and research where experimental and alternative discourses and pedagogies can emerge. I argue that the instabilities and slippages between what is visible and invisible, known and unknown, in these spaces enable insightful and multivalent ways of seeing and understanding the complexities of alterity and otherness. Furthermore, I discuss how the insights and revelations of art practice and research challenge socially and historically constructed ways of seeing and understanding and, in doing so, constitute the immanent and generative learning processes of prosthetic visuality.
