‘Amateur Strategies’ art workshop builds walls in Kerckhoff


Second-year political science student Weiwen Balter meets artist Cedric Tai in what they both claim as a “serendipitous” encounter. This chance meeting leads to the CAC month-long, weekly art series workshop “Amateur Strategies” in the Kerckhoff art gallery space. Inspired by the restriction of no drilling holes in the space, Tai’s interactive art piece invites students and other gallery visitors to actively participate in art installations such as physically building walls, picking locks, and making pepper spray. Tai hopes to open up the dialogue between art, students, and the overlapping social sphere the two share.

    Niiice! I almost included that quick chop style of showing off of tools that you did in the beginning when I was making my ‘instructional video’, but I never got around to it.
