This is a group photo of my last class, a digital hybrids class. The plan was to roughly recreate Leonardo’s “Last Supper” with some students assigned to mimic particular roles and gestures from the original painting; students painted and dressed themselves in character accordingly. As the photo sessions devolved into a kind of controlled chaos the scene became more absurd and laughable than anything I’d planned and a perfect way to bid my formal teaching career adieu.
With deep appreciation and thanks to: Taylor, Kyle, Maggie, Andriana, Alex, John, Griffin, Elise, Katie, Megan, Juliette, Devon, Nikki, Kasie, Marti, Megan P., Melanie, Abby, Kelley, Cara and Steve.
This piece consumed the better part of my waking hours during 2015, a labor of love, but a healthy respite from the emotional edges of the “The Temple of Wonders.”
