The Art of 'Her'
BY LORETO VALENZUELA
@ VOL 9
ON APR 25, 2017
Loreto Valenzuela talks about "The art of 'Her'". “...real adventures, I reflected, do not happen to people who remain at home: they must be sought abroad." From An encounter by James Joyce. Human encounters, as we all know, are inevitable. Most humans, adhering to their daily routine, tend to have encounters with the same people. However, when one leaves the routine and for example goes on holiday one finds themselves with many more fortuitous encounters than usual. What exactly counts as a fortuitous encounter, what effect may it have on ones life? This presentation will invite you to explore the links between art, curiosity and fortuitous human encounters.
