The CRCC Interdisciplinary Research Group, the USC Roski School of Fine Arts, and USC Archaeology are proud to present Haunting USC, an installation by artist Doug Jarvis.
March 7, 2013
3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
University Park Campus
USC Fisher Museum of Art (HAR)
Haunting USC is an investigation of human perception in an increasingly virtualized and mediated world. Artist Doug Jarvis (Victoria, BC, Canada) will inhabit a physical and psychic site within the USC Fisher Museum of Art.
Artist Doug Jarvis explores the phenomenon of “persistence of personality” as a way of engaging with the potential of the human imaginary. Drawing on his individual and collective projects he will construct an action-based media collage as a temporary installation within the gallery, culminating in a public discussion on Thursday, March 7 at 3:00 p.m.
Jarvis, a founding member of the avatar performance art group Second Front and the art collective Noxious Sector, presents an exploration of the potential of existing in the world in a variety of dimensions and forms.
Jarvis will be around the gallery during gallery hours on Wednesday and Thursday engaging with the site and building the temporary installation. The public are welcome to view the process during this time and to attend the public presentation.

We hope to see you there!

The USC Archaeology Research Center has paid jobs to work with the Pimu (Catalina) Island Archaeology Project. The specific project relates to archaeology research from Catalina Island, where USC’s Wrigley Center is located.
Catalina Island has been inhabited since 7,000 BC, and thousands of Native American archaeological sites dot the landscape. You’ll be helping create a database of site descriptions.
You do not need to know anything about archaeology. This project is ideal for motivated students who can read handwritten records and type details into a database.
The positions begin Spring 2013, and work study or stipend funding is available. Flexible hours available are for those who can work independently.
Interested students should contact Lynn Swartz Dodd at email@example.com Include your class level at USC and a few sentences about your past experience and abilities.
