The CCA is pleased to present “Rock, Paper, Video #3” a special new-media family event. On Saturday, July 5th, 2014 all three of the CCA’s floors will be turned into a creative playground with unique happenings in video, installation, painting, and cinema for kids, parents, and grandparents alike. The event will include four workshop stations, each offering a unique experience in the spirit of “Do It Yourself”. All activities are designed to encourage creative and original thinking and aim to stimulate the imagination as well as the hands. The four stations include:
1. A workshop that interweaves thinking, investing, and collaborative mechanical drawing inspired by Fischli and Weiss’ “The Way Things Go”
2. A workshop and video session lead by artist Gustavo Zagurski on how to create toys from everyday materials
3. A workshop in which kids will make their own DIY videos, fueled by their own original thinking, experimentation, and the resourcefulness of using found material
4. CC-Cinema, a special family-oriented film and video art program that will be screened in the CCA auditorium.
The event is organized by artists and Betzalel Academy of Art graduates Eden Bannet and Tali Keren, who run the CCA’s children’s education program, and who believe that new media can and should talk to and touch everyone, including little kids, by inspiring their curiosity and encouraging them to explore new ideas.
