In a previous blog I discussed the importance of having students actively disengage during the design process. This gives them a rest from the problem and helps stimulate creative thinking. This led me to the idea of writing about five "actively disengaging" walks I have taken on the shores of Lake Champlain. So, here's the second in the series of those walks. This time I visited North Street which is just a few blocks from campus and ends one block from the the lakefront.

Knowing 15 design professionals were going to show up at the College to look at their portfolios really got our graphic design students motivated — nervous, but motivated. We call it Portfolio Review Day and this year I decided participation was going to be a requirement for all Burlington College students in the Graphic Design program.

Spring semester 2015 gathered five unlikely students and one instructor in a small quiet spot on the second floor main hallway: Room 239. It is a rather airless space with two windows that look out on industrial brick and bleached roofing materials; it easily feels cramped. There is a small computer on a side table, a rosy-brown armoire that hides a television and DVD player, two trash cans, and ten chairs. There are no wall decorations. Into this room I welcomed Dan Baker, Maddie Balantine, Geran Miter, Casey O’Brien, and Everett Renderer one frosty day in January. We looked around and decided we had no choice.

An otherness emerged within each portrait, a sense that seemed to highlight the sisters’ holiness and their monstrous nature. They were robed in rigid black and white. "Time had dulled them into a safe anonymity. What had begun as an attempt at knowing Arthur and Gilbert had expanded into a desire to illuminate the sisters' dark authority. Arthur and Gilbert, a little more haunted now, were bound here by tragic necessity, the sisters by reverent choice," she says.
Also on display during the pop-up exhibition will be works from Meaker's Monstrous Feminine and Animism series. The photographs that comprise the series Monstrous Feminine explore psychoanalytic discourse related to the woman-as-monster / woman-as-victim archetypes as historically depicted in the horror genre of cinema.Meaker, 31 years old, is a full-time Burlington College student and works full-time running the business and studio of world-renowned artist Richard Erdman. She is anticipating graduating in December of this year with a bachelor of arts in art history.
