PIC 324 - Spiritual Optics
New York may have a reputation for cold blooded materialism, but a spectacular wealth of spiritual history and contemporary ritual life pulsate inches behind thousands of architectural facades: some likely and some surprising. We will delve into New York City’s ritual life past and present, exploring relationships between revelation and revolution, the divinatory and the didactic. For the culminating project, students will design an image system to complement a cosmology, ethical system, or ritual practice.
