On our co-chaired panel at the Foundations in Art, Theory and Education conference "Tectonic Shifts," Jesse Payne and I proposed a debate between technique and concept.
was originally on the side of concept, but unfortunately one of our panelists dropped out at the last minute and I had to switch sides. In this series of five-minute Pecha Kucha style presentations presenters are asked to take a side and make a stand and argue polemically. I think in the end I may have convinced myself. Since this panel and presentation, I have been repeating over and over to students: "It doesn't matter WHAT, it matters HOW."
