Object Lab is a hybrid gallery-classroom and a responsive pedagogical platform. Each semester, faculty across academic divisions collaborate with museum staff to select works of art that employ, investigate or interpret key course concepts. These works of art are then presented in a course-specific installation, offering students and faculty extended access to objects as visual texts. Throughout the semester, students return to the space to test neuroscience theories, write weekly journal entries about form and original context, and re-imagine literary characters.
This is the fifth iteration of Object Lab presented in a larger space to support teaching and learning.
