1. DIS/PLACE DIS/PLAY: A collaboratively-curated exhibit of the Students of Experimental Ethnography: At the Boundaries of Art and Anthropology.

    A team-taught course that addresses the axis of anthropology and art. It combines theoretical discourse and media production associated with the expanded fields of art and ethnography. Those familiar with the social sciences will be trained to critique and produce ethnographic representations in media including film, sound and photography, while considering parallel developments in contemporary art. Similarly, those
    experienced in art and media production will make use of the theoretical and ethical considerations of anthropology and new experiments in ethnography while continuing their art and media practices. The course contains seminar and production practicum components, as well as various field trips, screenings, and guest lectures. The course culminates in this exhibition in the Jewett Gallery, in which all students participated.

    Experimental Ethnography: At the Boundaries of Art and Anthropology (ANTH/ART/CAMS 362), taught with Professors Deborah Matzner and David Kelley, who is professor on the Studio Art faculty. This course culminated in a collaboratively-curated exhibit of students' projects, entitled Displace/Display, held in the Jewett Art Gallery.

  4. This short ethnographic documentary is a jumping off point that explores the relationship between photographer Cristina Cenciarelli and the island of Boipeba, Bahia, Brazil. It also examines the recent arrival of progress to the island and its peoples.
    Cenciarelli’s narration is a testimony of the many factors at play on the island, visually illustrated by shots of the sociocultural environment at work and images of rituals and traditions that remain preserved by the Afro and indigenous descendants who inhabit the island.
    The film reflects that one’s life is unique and flows as a continuous moment, constructed from one's experiences and recollections and controlled only by one’s self. Life then is a singular and subjective event regardless of where one is born, regardless of socio-economic, cultural or racial divides.
    I expect to bring some imbalance as a visual antidote to the narrow limits of cinematography today.

    Sinopse do filme em Portugues:
    Este documentário etnográfico é um ponto de partida que explora a relação entre Cristina Cenciarelli e a ilha de Boipeba, Bahia, Brasil. Também examina a recente chegada do progresso para a ilha e seus povos.
    A narracao de Cenciarelli é um testemunho dos muitos fatores em jogo na ilha, visualmente ilustrado por fotos do ambiente sociocultural e imagens de rituais e tradições que permanecem preservados por descendentes Afro e indígenas que habitam a ilha.
    O filme reflete que a vida é única e flui como um momento contínuo, construídos a partir de suas experiências e lembranças e controlado apenas por si mesmo.
    A vida, então, é um evento singular e subjetivo, independentemente de onde se nasce, independentemente do desenvolvimento sócio-econômico, cultural ou racial divide.
    Espero trazer um pouco de desequilíbrio como um antídoto visual para os estreitos limites da cinematografia de hoje.

    Sinopse do filme em Frances:
    Ce documentaire est un point de départ pour explorer la relation entre Cristina Cenciarelli, photographe, et l’île de Boipeba, Bahia, Brasil. Il examine aussi l’arrive récent du progrès à l’île et sa peuple.
    La narration de Cenciarelli est un témoignage des plusieurs éléments qui sont présentes à l’île, illustré par les vues de l’environnement socioculturel en action et les images des rituelles et traditions qui restent conservés grâce aux habitants, descendants de leurs ancêtres Africaines et indiennes.
    Le film révèle que chaque vie est unique et roule dans un moment continuel, construite des expériences et mémoires personnels, contrôlé seulement par soi-même. Alors, la vie est singulière et subjective, n’ importe où on est né, et n’importe quelles fractures sociales, culturelles, ou raciales.
    Je compte amener quelque déséquilibre comme un antidote visuel aux limites étroites de cinématographie aujourd'hui.
