Of Public Interest (OPI) Lab
Of Public Interest (OPI) Lab is a one-year international course for professional practitioners in art, architecture, and related fields, especially those interested in, or working with, visual and spatial practices. Working with practice-based thinking and making, we experiment with artistic strategies and language in our common spaces – beyond commissions.
Materialities; energies comprises a series of labs that use visuality, measurability and traceability as tools and guidance. Through the awareness of energy footprints and recognition of their vitality and context, conditions are created for artistic expression to expand and gain agency in our age. Over an academic year, energy—the basal, yet most abstract, form of matter—will be the foundation on which we construct our artistic language.
