362B Reimagining Blake


William Blake was a risk-taker and a rule-breaker. In his creative output, he sought to unshackle the ideological "mind-forg'd manacles" that stunted human thought. We will study Blake's seminal works and apply some risk-taking and rule-breaking of our own by digitally recreating a few of his illustrated plates. Just as Blake used text and image in his original plates, so will we, as we creatively and critically reimagine Blake's work and his message.

(Offered Spring 2016.)
