artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond

Violence Transformed, Stop-Motion Film Project
This digital film group project explored the theme Violence Transformed through drawing, painting, collage, stop-motion animation, and performance art. Nineteen girls participated in this six-week project. Given that the girls' identities needed to be protected and no faces could be filmed or voices recorded, making a film required creative problem-solving from all involved. Girls developed a visual narrative about transformation through hand-drawn elements and digital animation, working off the musical soundtrack of Lauryn Hill, Everything is Everything, with the refrain 'after winter, must come spring.'

This film was accepted by the Teen Film Curators of the Cloud Foundation to be shown in the 3rd Teen Film Screening at the Cloud Foundation (May 2007). It can be viewed on-line on YouTube.
