SAIC MAAT THESIS NIGHT
MAY 10, 2013
5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the film was assembled by Burnat and Israeli co-director Guy Davidi. Structured around the violent destruction of each one of Burnat's cameras, the filmmakers' collaboration follows one family's evolution over five years of village turmoil, as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost.

Collaborative Altered Book Project
Per Hillary Kaufman
I am starting a collaborative altered book project and am looking for anyone who is interested to participate! I am interested in gathering together a community of people to alter the same photocopied book page and then to combine them together into one collaborative book. This book will be used in future altered book groups and workshops to visually demonstrate the seemingly infinite range of possibilities in altering book pages as well as to illustrate how each person's unique voice/style is present in each work of art regardless of starting with the same material. At the end of the project, I will send all participants a digital version of all the pages created as a "reward" for participating! (Paper copies or even bound copies are a possibility to discuss as well if people are interested...)
Anyone that is interested in participating should send me a message with your email (for electronic copies/communication) and home address to send the paper copy. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions and IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT AN "ALTERED BOOK" IS OR HOW TO CREATE AN ALTERED BOOK PAGE ... JUST ASK AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION.... Lets see what happens and what we can create together! Please share this message with friends/classmates/fellow artists/children/coworkers or anyone who may be interested!
