Mexican artist to install interactive project, speak on KU campus this week

The Spencer Museum of Art will host Mexican artist Nacho Rodriguez Bach as he installs his interactive project, “The Path of Thought,” with the help of Kansas University students on the school’s campus this week.

Doubling as an art installation and a social experiment, “The Path of Thought” seeks to counteract violence through unbiased thinking, according to a statement from the Spencer Museum. The installation consists of a series of thought-provoking diagrams that participants follow along a set path on the floor.

Rodriguez Bach will also discuss the concepts at play in the installation during an artist’s talk at 6 p.m. Wednesday at The Commons, 1340 Jayhawk Blvd.

His multidisciplinary work often integrates philosophy, interactive games or activities and new media to raise important questions.

“The Path of Thought” will remain on view Wednesday through Feb. 25 at The Commons before traveling to other sites on campus and throughout the community this spring.
