Artist-in-Residence James Bellucci worked with three groups of Bubbler Teens to create and photograph storyboard dioramas. Each storyboard depicts the group's interpretation of the Greek myth of Icarus, the tragic legend of a young man who used wax and feather wings to escape imprisonment. Unfortunately, he fell into the sea after the sun melted his wings.
After discussing the myth of Icarus, the Bubbler Teens went to work selecting materials.
Using play-doh, images from magazines, toys, and other props, each group built their own renditions of the story.
James Bellucci and the Bubbler Teens then photographed their storyboards using a variety of angles, equipment, and techniques.
Bubbler Teen says:
We made a really amazing cool thing today!
