Photos From the Innovation Forum: On the Ceiling

March 8, 2012


On the Ceiling was an exhibition of student work created as a visual response project, inspired by the novel Au Plafond (On the Ceiling) by Éric Chevillard.

In the novel, one of the distinguishing features of the main character is that he wears a chair upside-down on his head — both an absurdist gesture and a creative horizon from which the story itself unfolds.

For the project, students were challenged to take a picture of someone wearing a chair, incorporating the spirit of engagement into the process. The intent was to initiate dialogue among participants – as a space for whimsical speculation and creative rethinking of performance and representation.
