Video Art: Chinese Legend
There are always hidden surprises in archives. I recently found this nostalgic slide in the Gottesman Libraries video art collection. This reminds me of those old school days when teachers used the early generation of projector (see picture below) for slide shows before classrooms started being equipped with those technologies that we use today.
The name of “Chinese legend” also reminds me of a traditional Chinese theater art called shadow puppetry. The art is a combination of craftsmanship, motion, storytelling, creativity and team work. It’s very educational in the classroom and fun for students of all age levels. See? Grandma’s tradition can never be obsolete!
