Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 2:02 pm



The Smithsonian Institution Hirshhorn Museum kicked off their teen design studio programming with the ARTLAB+ Video: City of Ruins workshop on January 24th. Ten teens are dedicated to being part of this teen design team. Their design challenge: to create a video series exhibition inspired by ruins in Washington, DC.

Teens spent the first two weeks exploring the foundations of photography and videography through specific composition challenges.

Brianna took these two photos to illustrate how changing the camera angle can impact the way the subject is captured.



John took a first stab at camera moves, as shown in this short video. Don't miss his footage of Ardhy demonstrating "the truck."

Stay tuned for more digital dispatches as the teen designers form production teams, plan video concepts, shoot and edit their work, then work together to create a museum exhibit displaying their video series.
