Presented in collaboration with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center
A projected plane of light appears often in Boohri Park‘s work as the most reduced and abstract form of a space, but also as a medium which frees a given space from its physical structure. In the form of light, different spaces get to meet each other. For this collaboration with the Early Childhood Center, each student received a box or a box-like object with a cut-out window to decorate using, for example, transparent films, color marker, stickers, etc. In a darkened classroom, the students lit up their new objects with LED flashlights to reveal the resulting images as projections on the wall. Altogether, they collectively created an image of many lit windows throughout the classroom.
ECC x Artists Alliance is a series of collaborative projects initiated by Artists Alliance Inc with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center. Designed and led by guest artists, in collaboration with ECC educator Tom Pnini, students work in the classroom on pre-designed projects that both parallel the school’s current art curriculum and extend from the individual artist’s existing practice. Collectively, the projects urge students to experience art-making through unexpected visual relationships, using professional artists’ practices as a means to create engaging and interactive learning activities.| | | Next → |
