The Projecting Particles Collective visited the Taos Day School 5th and 6th grade classrooms to deliver a three day immersive workshop that combined particle physics, native science and projection art. Students explored the origins of the universe and created animated Petroglyph-Feynam Diagram Hybrids projected onto a tipi. Best student animations from the workshop will be projected on to the tipi at The PASEO festival through a live painting session curated by Tagtool founder, OMAI.
Through an inter-school collaboration, lead students from the Taos Integrated School of the Arts (TISA) that have participated in the core pilot program and served as assistants for the workshop at the Taos Day School to practice their leadership skills. Lakota cultural specialist, Steve Tamayo, led the indigenous instruction and will be a guest artist at the festival to lead a collective weaving of a dreamcatcher inside the tipi with audience participation. Students will be present at the installation site to assist and see the results of their work. Student work from a joint workshop at Native American Community Academy will also be projected.
