Build: Building Experience Course

Artemis Institute's Building Experience Course is an accredited and transferrable 4 credit course that runs in parallel with the Remote Studio program. Students attending this course develop construction skills while working on the Remote Studio build project for a community client. The projects are selected for their ability to support the community's awareness of sustainability and the interrelation of culture and nature. The projects which are located in rural to wild locations throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, are specifically sited, place-based structures that help support the public's experience of wild and natural environments. Each project that is built during the Building Experience course is designed and detailed by the students of the Remote Studio program. The Building Experience course process is two-part involving the structure's pre-fabrication by the students at Artemis Institute's home campus in Bozeman, Montana followed by the transportation and installation of the work at it's site.

Readings and Discussions

Readings and discussions cover environmental ethics, creative processes, and explorations of varied worldviews to develop a student's understanding of themselves and the world. The readings become springboards for broad discussions that support necessary communication skills that are more about listening and less about developing rational defenses.



vessels_img_color

Vessels

The creation of vessels provide each student the opportunity to explore and contemplate their sense of the world. Built from materials found in selected sites, vessels serve as temporary markers of an evolving relationship with the world.

Vessels are more than the construction of an idea, they are artifacts of an individual's response to culture. More Vessel Info >>


backcountry_img_color

Backcountry Trips

Adventure provides immersive first-hand experiences, leisure provides time for personal reflection to interpret these experiences. The result of this reciprocal process is first-hand knowledge. A critical practice of this educational method occurs through the immersive experience of place and self in the backcountry and wilderness of the Yellowstone Eco-Region. More Backcountry Info >>



designBuild_img_color

Design Build

Students employ place-based knowledge and experience gained over the semester, including appropriate material selection and sustainable design considerations in the design and construction of a project for a community client.

The Remote Studio Environment

Learning to live through the cycle of the season is a valuable lesson of Remote Studio, and one that is a lived experienced as you adjust to the weather, daylight hours, cycle of construction, and understand the value of chopping wood and keeping a fire going in the wood burning stove, or dressing in response to the temperature swings of the high mountain altitude.



Location

Artemis Institute is located in Bozeman, Montana. With a population of about 38,000 people, Bozeman is filled with local stores and businesses. Bozeman is also home to a large amount of environmental non-profits, thriving arts community as well as outdoor adventurists who came for a visit and never left. There are great restaurants, cinemas, outdoor adventure companies, art galleries and several grocery stores.



Weather

Winter is long in the Northern Rockies. And it is for this reason that Remote Studio does not operate from January through May. Beyond the winter season are the glorious months in the Northern Rockies where you can hike a trail or ski a mountain slope, float a river or cycle for miles. The weather during these months is a surprise to most people who do not live here. You must still be prepared for great weather changes and temperature swings.

The mountain environment is dry. Which means that there is no moisture to hold in the temperature of the day once the sun goes down. For this reason, be prepared for a twenty degree temperature drop as soon as the sun sets over the mountains. It's a beautiful and enlivening experience.
