Teaching a two week studio in new media at a restored Frank Lloyd Wright House
Curriculum Development, instruction, event coordination
In July of 2008, the Westcott House Foundation and The Now Device combined forces to facilitate a two week, immersive, design studio in new media for students with an interest in arts and design and who wished to explore the potential of new and emerging media. The intent of this pilot project was to give young students cutting edge tools, place them in an amazing location and encourage them to produce expressive works of art. The studio introduced students to the use of contemporary audio and visual time-based media as a means of communicating ideas, expressing artistic themes and capturing and exploring emotional meaning.

The culmination of the studio was a public showing of student work on the evening of July 25th at the Westcott House. Visitors were able to watch video segments produced by the studio graduates and to experience a three-dimensional audio/visual installation in the house’s main stairwell.
