Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering are founders and lead artists in the socially-engaged art collaborative DOEprojekts.
Deborah and Glenn emphasize both experiences and artifacts as they work with communities and individuals, drawing upon Coreforms and cultural Keywords as invitations to interact.
“Coreforms” for DOEprojekts are zero (circle), one (vertical line), hyphen (horizontal line), tilde (swash) and period (point). These forms are connected through movement. (link to the “Thoughts about Coreforms”?)
Cultural Keywords are sourced from various writers including, but not limited to, Raymond Williams and WJT Mitchell. Several blogs explore keywords, including:
Deborah Adams Doering received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her individual works focus on the relationship of keywords Nature and Technology and can be seen at www.DeborahDoering.com
Glenn N. Doering received his MS in Biology from Loyola University of Chicago. His individual works explore keywords Biology, Body, and Fashion. He creates unique wearable objects.
