A Hearing Aid for Hipsters
What do you get when you combine increased use of alternative jewelery (read: ear plugs) with a generation with ears blown out from concerts and heavy iPod listening?


When the Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1893, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Built by John, Washington and Emily Warren Roebling, it was a feet of engineering that has connected millions of people.

We’re working on our own bridge, for educators to connect students around the world. Partnering with MIT Center for Future Civic Media and Digital Democracy, Project Roebling – named for the builders of the Brooklyn Bridge – is the base for Project Lumiere, our video-based digital penpal program to connect youth internationally.

On Thursday, May 7th 2009, 15 Loughlin students in Brooklyn had a video-conference call via Skype with students from St. Francis Assisi Academy in Liverpool, England. The purpose of the call was to share thoughts about global warming. St. Francis is also a Lasallian school and the conversation was part of a community project they did called Climate for Change.

Rebekah Rutkoff worked with her After School Atelier high school students on the project Experiments in Documentation. Working from the notion that raw materials for art making can always be found close-at-hand, students assembled a body of material that represented their personal and communal spaces. Utilizing these found objects with Premiere and Photoshop software, these students investigated digital video as a medium and created pieces of moving poetry.

Rutkoff is an artist and curator living in Brooklyn. Her work in photography and video art has been shown internationally. In 2001 she co-founded the Jaraf video art screening series in New York City. She is at work on an ongoing project that blurs the line between art-making and curatorial practices entitled Color Therapy for Oedipal Conflicts.
