SPRING BREAK DIGITAL ART WORKSHOP
for High School Girls

10AM-5PM // April 18 & April 19

High school girls will collaborate with Eyebeam Fellows Kaho Abe & Nova Jiang to create an interactive digital art installation that will be featured at Figment Festival, a 3-day public art festival taking place on NYC’s Governor's Island (June 10-12). Over the course of a 2-day workshop at Eyebeam, students will learn how to embed basic electronics into everyday objects to transform them into musical instruments.

 

This workshop is for creative young women between the ages of 14-18. No experience with technology required.

 

 

This year's Girls Eye View program, led by Eyebeam Alum Tali Hinkis (LoVid) in partnership with Good Shepherd services has been rocking along! We have challenged young women to express their ideas through visual language exercises, sharing questions and statements online through Facebook, and focusing on transforming words into meaningful images in digital messages and back again. What follows is a visual journey through the past few weeks with our group:

 

We worked together to identify one single word that is meaningful to us. After discussing the meaning of each word, we talked about how that meaning could be represented visually. We chose words like: FREEDOM, FEARLESS, LIFE, PASSION, LOVE and DEATH.

 

Today in Girls Eye View, we looked at some examples of artwork that is created by asking others questions, and then capturing the responses via photos. We then talked about what some of our personal questions are, and then created signs featuring some the questions that trouble us, or questions that we think are important.

This year's Girls Eye View program, features a new collaboration with young women from Euphrasian Residence, a Good Shepherd Services' residential program.

Youth participants collaborated with artist and Eyebeam Alum Tali Hinkis (LoVid) in an eight-week program where they drew on personal topics and themes explored during their time spent at Euphraisan Residence; such as safety, emotion, loss, and future. These words were a starting point for creating short animations reflecting a personal definition of a word. This process helped the youth integrate the meaning of the words derived from the Sanctuary Model, into their lives and relationships with themselves and their community.
