Maria Park and Branden Hookway: Training Setting on view at Cornell University's Architecture Art Planning
October 11, 2017
Congratulations to Maria Park and Branden Hookway for their collaborative exhibition on view through November 17, 2017.
Training Setting investigates social and control protocols using a diagrammatic language of flight cockpits and table settings. To train within a technologized environment is to mediate both formal and informal instruction — where a formal understanding of information and procedure coexists with a tacit knowledge of embodied action. In this sense, training is inherently an orientation toward both the actual and the virtual, as performance draws upon informal knowledge according to formalized protocols. The exhibition explores this hybrid state of training through a series of paintings, sculptures, and drawings.
