How is fear used to shape our lives and dictate our actions?
What does fear reveal about our humanity?
Students exhibited a variety of performances, interactive digital works, and writings for public audiences in an arcade-styled experience. Their research and writing began in English and their interactive simulations were designed and coded in their Computer Programming class. At exhibition, the tables were arranged in a circle and the lights were dim. As audiences entered the exhibition they were greeted with a large projection of the manifesto slide shown above. This experience was powerful. Through their projects and presentations, students facilitated candid and meaningful conversations with their audiences about their challenges and concerns as emerging members of the adult community.
