Alex Morales. The first explorations in a series of projects made with the collaboration of the youth of Bushwick High School, Brooklyn, New York. Students were asked to draw a personal map of their neighborhood, then create a "videomap" based on it. These portraits are part of a larger documentary project about the youth exploring issues of identity, belonging, and place. These portraits, plus two more and extra footage, will be compiled into a full interactive DVD. Contact rainer@rilkeanheart.org for more info.
