Survive life as an artist with this eclectic, skill-based crash course. You will learn some: installation building, carpentry, home-brewing, guerrilla gardening, electric wiring, robotics, fire-making, fixing things, plumbing, pneumatics, pumps, water purification, high-voltage electricity, video surveillance, electronic interfaces, scavenging for materials, cooking alternatives, solar power, skinning a rabbit, lighting, remote control systems, survivalist contemporary art history, and promoting and exhibiting your art. This class will have local visiting artists. We will incorporate elements of time, process, interactivity, performance, light, space, installation, and video, and we will consider how to realize these practices in a contemporary, conceptual way. http://www.sfai.edu/site-adventures
