The Workshop will begin with a tour of the Laurie Frick exhibit, followed by a discussion on her work and methods.
Participants will then measure their own behaviors and body functions, such as height, foot size, blood pressure, blinking, swallowing, steps taken around the room, etc.
Large graph paper will be provided and each student will explore, graph, chart and draw their observations.
