Make: Video shorts with artist Wioleta Kaminska

We are always somewhere: home, work, the gym, on our way to a friend’s house or the grocery store. But where are we really? What’s our state of mind? Are we present in the moment? Or are we somewhere else entirely?

More and more, technology and information are shifting our perception of time and the way we navigate spaces. Unnecessary noise can take away our focus and our ability to see. 

In this workshop:

  • you’ll work with designer and media artist Wioleta Kaminska to create a short video piece.
  • Wioleta will lead you through techniques for catching those things that appear in your immediate environment that you typically don’t see.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to walk around the neighborhood and observe your surroundings at a slow pace.
  • You'll get to document your “journey” using your smartphone and from this create a short video with your classmates.

• No experience necessary, but you will need a smartphone that can take short videos.

Practitioner Bio

Wioleta Kaminska is a Polish-born and San Francisco-based designer, media artist and linguist - but most of all, she’s a storyteller. Her work ranges from photography, drawings and motion graphics to film, video, and animations. Though fast-talking, she creates meditative video landscapes that are both a study in perception and a visual reflection of the how we find ourselves caught between nature and technology, contemplation and complexity. 

This workshop is presented in collaboration with Storefront Institute.
