Film Etching at Breakthrough Miami

This month the girls at Breakthrough Miami worked with artist and WOTR! instructor, Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez to create elaborately etched film curtains.

The girls learned how artists use appropriation to create new ideas from found objects.

Using awls and found 16mm film, the girls etched new narratives out of existing ones.

The girls then worked as a group to assemble their individual strips to create a light-catching curtain, which will be exhibited later this year.
