who: Shawn Huckins
what: 18th century ROFL paintings.
why: because we love a bit of technology in any artwork! Shawn Huckins describes his 21st century pieces entitled 'American Revolution Revolution: What would George post?' as exploring "...the brief history of the United States comparing the political revolution of when the country was founded in the 1700s versus the technological revolution that's been happening over the past decade." Students are constantly tweeting or playing on their phones so why not embed this idea into a project. We love the thought of personal and cheeky abbreviated text messages or twitter exchanges over images and think it is a great starting point for any self-portrait/fashion related project.
What will your students post?
