SELFIE QUINDI SONO - Pilot of #SELFBOOK PROJECT -
Workshop by Luna Coppola and Sara Lusini
SELFIE QUINDI SONO was the pilot of the Selfbook project. The workshop was done in Milan at the Fondazione Onlus Pepita. The project The project was realized with a group of seven teenagers (aged 14 to 17 years) from several professional schools near Milan (Erba, Sesto San Giovanni, etc.).
With this workshop, we propose active participation by attendees in a "real space" where collaboration is possible through a common creative process in opposition to the "virtual space" that young people are certainly more familiar with. The kids created a "Dummy Book" with images chosen during the workshop, so that the "Dummy Book" becomes a container of self-portraits, selfies and stories, a tangible object that displays a kind of storytelling that lives, otherwise, in a totally intangible dimension.
