About this Event
1465 Jayhawk Boulevard, Lawrence, KS 66045
Fereshteh Toosi designs experiences that pose questions and foster animistic connections through encounter, exchange, and sensory inquiry. Their artwork involves documentary processes, oral history, and archival research. Immersive performances are produced in conjunction with small sculptures, short films, installations, scores, and poetry.
While in residence at KU, Toosi will host a collaborative workshop with students that centers public reading and listening of poetry, using geolocated audio augmented reality.
Toosi is an Assistant Professor in the Art and Art History Department of the College of Communication, Architecture, and the Arts at Florida International University in Miami.
