Quick Ideas for Using the Video:

  • For Discussion: Do your students feel the artist is correct in saying there is no emotion involved with using current devices as there was with the analog tech she uses in this exhibit? Why or why not?
  • Activity Idea: Use the video as inspiration for a cross-curricular project in history/social studies. Have students research a device, procedure, or belief that is no longer used and create an art project reflecting its use.
