Copyright DS Rousell 2017


States and Territories is an adventure in creative thinking and practice that unfolds through a series of artistic, theoretical, and pedagogical experimentations in university learning environments. The thesis explores how university learning environments might be imagined, constructed, and theorised differently in the Anthropocene, a time typified by environmental, social, and technological change. As a work of research-creation, the States and Territories project has pivoted on the installation of site-specific artworks across the learning environments of SCU’s Lismore campus. These artworks have formed a pedagogical architecture for exploring posthumanist concepts with students and lecturers working across the arts, humanities, and sciences.
