It was a real privilege to be involved in Convergence (art+technology), which is part of Beakerhead (a smashup of art, science & engineering) for Rocky View Schools. Almost 250 of the most engaged art students in the region came together to work in tandem, whether in fine arts, music, drama, or video, on the theme of 'Connecting'. As I walked around speaking with the students it was interesting to see how they related to that theme - trees+nature, technology+social media, the human experience+circles. Because the students had access to a large variety of media and substrates, it was so interesting to see how their vision came to life. I'm excited to see how this all comes together with the rest of the Beakerdrop projects on Thursday.
