The Sorry Series: Cassie Thornton
As an adjunct program to On Apology (April 19-May 19, 2012), The Sorry Series will investigate public and private iterations of the apology, examining how apologies are formed, their subtlety or lack thereof, and their potential, if any, to accomplish real change.
Using the popular board game Sorry! , Cassie Thornton will explore the psychoanalytic questions behind player behavior to reveal unconscious personal pathologies that block sincere apology and forgiveness.
Cassie Thornton is currently developing a body of work based in research about the meaning and material of debt. As a 2012 graduate student at CCA, her current work engages with the student debt of her peers as psychological and financial material. She developed the Teaching Artist Union(2009 - ongoing) in New York City after five years as an art educator in public schools. She is the founder and co-director for the School of the Future, a 24 hour, one-month intergenerational outdoor free school designed for and by teaching artists.
