'Seat Of Learning'
‘Seat of Learning’ is an art installation investigating time, movement, memory, knowledge, and how we learn from material objects at the Galleries of Contemporary Art.
Seat of Learning is an art installation investigating time, movement, memory, knowledge, and how we learn from material objects. The concept originated when the artists found a vintage school desk that encapsulated 20th-century early learning through its patina, material presence, and history of use.
Gathering stories from a diverse range of individuals and objects from across the western United States and the Pikes Peak region, the artists have presented a selection as creative content for the final installation.
Lackey and Lehn worked with UCCS students to create the installation, further layering the learning experience embodied by this installation.
