Matthias Geiger: Uncanny ‘07

Matthias Geiger (Art Department, UC Davis) Faculty

The course works across the disciplines of the visual arts, performance art, music, and design.  Site-specific art and performances were created by the students and presented in a live event at the end of the quarter. Artists aimed to make their work accessible to spectators on multiple levels of perception. UNCANNY’s integrative character attracted a diverse group of visitors. It’s name refers to the location of the inaugural festival site, an enormous tomato cannery plant in Davis.
