Opposite Emotions was a 2-room multimedia installation, collaboratively produced by 8 teen girls 6-8th grade, together with Turning Point’s SmartLab instructor and students. Shown at STEAM Expo in 2015, the project is an immersive experience dealing with adolescent self-image and was an impacting artwork on many levels.
History on the Hill was a series of temporary site-specific art installations made by middle school students in 2017, investigating land formations and natural history, in partnership with State Parks rangers and archaeologist. The students’ artworks invited audiences to bring a native tree species “back to life,” see ships sailing on the horizon, identify landmarks, and learn about the past and present of the native Tongva tribe in the Baldwin Hills landscape.
Also shown are images from an Installation Art course at Alma D’Arte Charter High school in Las Cruces, NM which involved several temporary public installations.
