Presentation: Yvonne Houy and Julian Kilker

Yvonne Houy (College of Fine Arts) and Julian Kilker (Journalism and Media Studies) presented "Light and Shadow, Trauma and the Arts, Or: Art-Informed Higher Education of the Future" on Nov. 3 at the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities' 2021 Annual Conference. 

The audience Q &A and presentation, a recording of their live visual performance mixing traditional and digital media with vocal and ambient sound, was inspired by the tradition and characters of Southeast Asian shadow puppetry. The multimedia performance dramatized the traumas of 2020 at the intersection of isolation and connection, online technology and education, and investigated how media-informed education and online technologies can support healing.
