The Triple “P”

Week 5 - Fowler Museum

The trip to the Fowler Museum was a very interesting experience, especially since I didn’t know we had a museum on campus. I was a bit late, but still got to hear the interesting information about the khipu in the exhibit. It looked like many different strings with knots in them, all tied together at a base. This one was made of cotton and vegetable fiber, and found around 1500 CE (Fowler Museum).

Week 5: Connecting with Culture

Although I got lost on my way to Fowler Museum, I was able to listen to some of the lecture on the khipu and how different people used it and interacted with it. I thought it was interesting how those who made the Khipu originally said that others must actually touch the cotton and fibers to truly understand it. Like the speaker said, archaeologists want to preserve items such as these and the oils on our fingers often destroy the pieces of art. To combat this, they wear gloves.

Week 5: Quipus and Fowler

Last week, we visited the Fowler Museum to see their exhibition. It was my first time visiting the museum, and I was amazed by all of their artifacts displayed. Some of these artifacts are of the 18th or 19th century and preserved to this day. I definitely need to come back to the Fowler museum to have a better look at everything in the exhibition! (Fowler photo)

Reading Quipus + Art of Communication

Last week, the class had a wonderful trip to the Fowler Museum to see the “Communication Systems in a Global Context" exhibit. We mainly focused on the quipu and listened to a great presentation by Alba Menéndez Pereda about the Incan Khipu. I went to the Fowler Museum a few times my first year, but it has been awhile, so it was great to go back. When I normally go through museums, I tend to take a quick stroll throughout every room, but never spend too long reading a single piece.

Decolonial Media Art Beyond 530 Years Event Blog

            This Friday I attended the “Decolonial Media Art Beyond 530 Years” event. The discussion included thirteen different presenters whose work centers around the decolonization of art, media, and our understanding of art. This conversation was incredibly interesting. Previously, I had not really considered the impact of the movement towards decolonization on art. Typically, when I think of decolonization, I think of evaluating and changing the way we teach and understand history.
