Girls Eye View 2005


Teaching artist Mariam Ghani worked with sixth grade students from School of the Future for two months in 2005 to produce sound, image and web projects that take explorations of the girls' family histories as starting points for personal investigations of historical events.

Project Created: 
February 2005
Start Date: 
1 Jan 2005 - 31 May 2005

At Girls Eye View (GEV) Spring 2005, teaching Artist Cat Mazza taught students in the Girls Eye View program about the overlaps between knitting, computers and women’s labor history. There were lessons in hand knitting, how to work a knitting machine, and how to make needlecraft patterns with Photoshop and knitPro. The needlecraft they stitched were of icons of popular culture that were then animated into a social commentary.
