12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
JUMP!STAR Lecture 4: Annie Jump Cannon and the Science + Stories of JUMP!STAR
Location: Henrion Hall, Room 120

Join the studio arts class JUMP!STAR Sculpture & Ritual a public lecture by Brooklyn-based artist and JUMP!STAR creator George Ferrandi. A light lunch will be provided.

JUMP!STAR is an interdisciplinary experiment in culture-making and recalibrating our relationship with time. This initiative involves a series of "constellates:" artists, musicians and scientists working with communities in Kansas to invent the future cultural traditions (dance, music, food, sculpture) that would accompany the eventual transitioning of our North Star, which will occur in about a thousand years. Constellate 3 focuses on the sculptural components of this future celebration. Students are learning the traditional Japanese techniques for making very large-scale paper sculptures that are used in Nebuta festivals in the Aomori region of Japan.

They will work with Ferrandi on the fabrication of one of a series of twelve JUMP!STAR sculptures, each representing one of the earth's eventual pole stars.
