Through the concept of a laboratory, students will contemplate, create, and implement theories, practices, and new narratives about the self and the world. Students will begin by exploring and sharing their personal histories and relationships to Black and Native histories and cosmic visions in Brazil, the United States, and Indiana, and create a living body of work open to the public as a celebration/exhibition.
