In this class, students will explore the history of symbols from several perspectives, learn to utilize the power of symbols in their life and work, and leave class with a finished object, a talisman like these:
Under the guidance of the instructor, through research of images and texts from the ARAS archive, class discussion, and a lecture by Ami Ronnberg–ARAS curator and editor of the Taschen’s Book of Symbols–students will explore the history of thier own, personally, significant symbols and their relation to both the Jungian notion of archetypes and the collective unconscious, as well as Purcell’s individual research exploring symbols in relation to the creative process. Students will leave with a broadened view of the significance of symbols, and how to harness and utilize symbols in their life and work. The final project will be the transformation of a personal symbol into a small, physical talisman/amulet, to serve as a reminder of ones character/values and as a confirmation of one’s inner/subconscious world.
