The Third Mind project is a joint effort between students in the departments of Fine Arts and Writing. Students in Professor David Gothard’s course “Illustration and Symbolic Imagery” and Professor Rachel Levitsky’s course “Community as Classroom” engaged in a collaborative interdisciplinary project involving both illustrative, sculptural, installation, and written works.

The goal of this project was to take an ordinary object with no religious or symbolic connotations and transform the context to convey an essence of veneration. Gothard’s students responded to the prompt in a 3D format. Levitsky’s students responded to the prompt by writing odes to a “sacred” object.
