Danielle Boutet (B. Mus., MA, MFA) is a music composer, an interdisciplinary artist and an art theoretician. She is the founding director of the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts Program at Goddard College in Vermont, a small experimental college offering programs beyond the traditional disciplines of the liberal arts. Goddardï¾’s educational approach advances the principles of progressive education as originally proposed by John Dewey and carried on by contemporary progressive educators internationally. Boutet is also a consultant on questions of interdisciplinarity in the arts and a participant in the international transdisciplinary movement.Her artistic workï¾—creative writing, sculpture, drawing and musicï¾—explores states of consciousness and artistic epistemologies, focusing especially on the materiality of language. She also advances these questions theoretically, and works currently on art as a practice of the ï¾“sacred.ï¾” A leading thread in her work has been the Wild in us, most especially the limits (and the impossibility) of a quest for the Wild when our identities are so thoroughly constructed. Les Dimensions sauvages (Dimensions of the Wild) is the overarching title of a whole series of visual, performative and literary works seeking signs and voices from a primordial and/or extra-temporal consciousness.
