The Nature Research Center in Raleigh, North Carolina is home to the extremelly impressive Patterned by Nature installation. The piece is 10 feet wide and 90 feet in length, it's also made up of 3,600 transparent glass "pixels" that change their opacity to simulate events in nature. There are twenty programs the ribbon cycles through, ranging from clouds, raindrops, birds flying, and more. The piece even plays an eight channel soundtrack to go along with the content being shown.
Have you heard about this movie?
It's an award winning documentary about the world’s largest teen slam poetry competition known as "Louder Than a Bomb." Every year, more than 600 teenagers from over 60 Chicago-area schools take part in the slam. This movie follows four of the slam teams - Whitney Young, Oak Park/River Forest, Northside College Prep, and Steinmetz as they prepare for the 2008 event.
We are screening the film on Friday, April 13 at 7pm in the Hendrickson Room for middle and high school students. Afterwards, you can perform your own poetry or listen to others share theirs.
Watch the trailer, register for the event, and we'll see you on the 13th!
