What Cost sm

In a unique collaboration between Austin Peay State University students, members of the APSU Social and Political Narrative and Sociology Senior Capstone courses are exploring what it really costs to attend college.

Dubbed “AT WHAT COST? — The Reality of a College Education,” the project represents the work between two groups of highly talented students exploring the high price of an education, and the price people pay financially, emotionally and physically. The project will be presented and showcased from 11:30-12:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at a luncheon in APSU’s McCord Building, room 209.

The presentation will take the form of a poster project, discussing themes developed from interviews conducted on campus, as well as personal narratives from sociology students. In collaboration with APSU art students, the groups helped shape the message each poster conveys.

Each poster was made using APSU’s Goldsmith Press and Rare Type Collection. The collection is a unique letterpress facility that includes thousands of hand-carved wood letters, antique printing presses, papermaking materials and bindery equipment.

Terminal and the Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University are pleased to announce the launch of reMIXmyRELIGION by Curt Cloninger. Cloninger is a recipient of a 2014 – 2015 Terminal Award. The Terminal Award is granted annually to aid in the creation of new internet based artworks.

Cloninger’s Project Statement

playdamage.org is a multimedia journal I have kept since 2000. Each piece links to the next piece, in reverse chronological order.

For the TERMINAL award, I created the most recent playdamage page, #107.

reMIXmyRELIGION

The audio excerpt is from “I Feel Love” by Giorgio Moroder + Donna Summer. Moroder is playing a Moog synthesizer. The photos of the room and the drumset are by the Texas outsider musician Jandek. They are the cover images of seven of his albums. The text is from a conversation between Jerry Lee Lewis and his producer Sam Phillips. They are arguing about whether or not God can use rock & roll. The screeshots of the text are from a digitized VHS copy of Dan Graham’s video _Rock My Religion_, an art documentary about the relationship between American religion and American rock & roll. The face is my face, weeping, listening to Nirvana in my headphones. My face is aleatorically animated.
