“TEN DIMENSIONS: Durational Viewing Workshop” by Alena Ahrens at Bruno David Projects.
“Ten Dimensions” is a contemplative encounter that explores the interrelations of space, time, and self. Led by contemporary artist and theorist, Alena Ahrens, participants engage in an opening mindfulness technique, a durational sensory exercise, and drawing. This experience is designed to deepen the art exploration process by expanding awareness and suspending judgment. Alena will lead this exploratory session of works in Monika Wulfer’s exhibit at Bruno David Projects.
Artist and social practitioner, Alena Ahrens applies her doctoral studies in psychology to the arts by facilitating contemplative encounters that are designed to deepen the individual experience by focusing on the senses and heightening participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience. Her work includes writing, sensory workshops, and studio practice. Alena is currently a candidate in the Low-Residency MFA program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
