This is another video diary from my trip to South Africa. These narratives allowed me to process the complex cultural history in Capetown. Trying to find meaning in the stories we heard in South Africa was no easy task.
I'm doing the Florida Humanities Council's Jump at the Sun workshop this week. The FHC program is focused on Zora Neale Hurston and her Eatonville Roots. My job is to talk about the context around black communities after the Civil War. I'm lucky that I can tell the story through a number of different narratives. I'm always experimenting with new techniques around visualization and narrative. I put together this graphic to grab people's attention. Is it working?
I put together a series of short films while traveling in South Africa. Some people journal, I use this opportunity to refine my knowledge of narrative and storytelling. The same logic that informs these shorts, influences the way I design course projects. I'm making to understand what I'm seeing. This video is all about comics in Capetown.
