On June 3rd and June 8th, World History students began interviewing each other and fellow art students to better understand the thinking that has gone into the creation of the shelters here on WHS’s campus. Students have been engaging each other in questioning to better understand:
1. How can an understanding of global issues influence art, specifically site-specific art?
2. What are the responsabilities of artists and journalists as citizens of the world?
3. How can art projects like the shelter project produce awareness and create conversations about global issues?
4. How did learning about slums and the context that people who live in slums have about their understanding of shelter influence the artistic creations of our students?
Besides these student-made videos, students turned in a number of excellent interviews of teachers and peers on the shelter project. Here are some excellent interviews of students talking about their shelters and making their thinking transparent:
