  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

A course ePortfolio is created by a faculty member as a way to share digital course content with students. In many ways it is similar to creating a custom website for the course. It allows for more custom design and multi-media functionality than the CMS.
