Review of Teen Lab Summer Programme with Teen Mentor Ciara Olden

© Chester Beatty Library

 

We would like to introduce you to one of our Teen Mentors Ciara Olden. Ciara attended workshops until she turned 18 and is now part of the mentorship programme. She recently completed her Leaving Certificate exams an awaits her results. We wish her every success. This is her review of the programme in July.

During the week of the 17th of July I had the privilege of sitting in on the Teen Club while they hosted Maker-in-Residence, Corinne Okada Takara. I could think of no one better to “Unravelling the Knot” with,  as Corinne talked us through both Celtic and Japanese knotting, with both cultures having their unique style and purpose for tying knots.

To start Corinne challenged our knot makers to design a knot in 2D. You also needed to think of its purpose and what it would be made from and then light it up using chibitronics. We then progressed to physical knots using pipe cleaners to create our own unique knots which we lit up using LEDs.

On our second day Corinne drew inspiration from the Library’s collection to create book marks using traditional Japanese mizuhiki cording. We then moved on to knots in 3D using fabric and wire to create an abstract piece that looked like a knot on one axis but when you rotated it, it became something else entirely.

On our last day Corinne put our skills to the test creating illuminated floating knots. Using laser cut frames we created a grid, allowing us to suspend knots using Chinese silk cording. Knots made; we created a circuit to light up our pieces. It really was a spectacle to behold when we turned off the lights!

On Tuesday and Thursday Lorraine took us through drawing the human figure: manga style! She showed us how to draw faces and signature manga eyes. Everyone left with their own full colour manga self-portrait. We then moved on to drawing figures in action, and it wasn’t long before our paper people were running and jumping to life.

On our final day we headed to Wood Quay venue as part of the Festival of Curiosity to build and also programme Lego robots. Our robot army had just been born when we left for Dublin Maker where our teens managed the impossible; to see everything in just one hour! I think we all came back with open minds and new ideas.

To say that I enjoyed the workshops would be an understatement. It was great to meet all the teens and learn something new. Who would have thought a knot would be art or a few lines could bring a drawing to life? I think it’s safe to say that tying my shoes will never be the same again!

Chester Beatty’s Creative Lab for Teens – Mentor Programme 2017

jack01

We would like to introduce you to our new Teen Lab mentor Jack Kavanagh. Jack has been with us since the very beginning of our programme for teens and has recently turned 18. This year, he will sit the Leaving Certificate exams and we wish him the best of luck! Jack will assist with the workshops and document his impressions of the programme to-date.

This is his first blog based on the Maker-in-Residence programme 5-12 December 2016 and see the interview featuring our teens and Krisjanis below:

On the 10th December, the Teen Club had the privilege of  hosting the then Maker-in- Residence, Krisjanis Rijnieks, as he gave us a crash course in Projection Mapping.

Projection Mapping is a pretty malleable term, so I’ll stick to describing what we and Krisjanis were doing. Using Raspberry Pi Computers, miniature projectors and images of some of the items in the Library’s collection, We created designs and projected them onto the walls in the workshop room. The programme we used was created by Krisjanis himself, and allowed us to create quadrilateral and triangular shapes for our designs. Using multiple layers of shapes and images, we were able to create intricate collages, with depth and texture. The programme allowed us to grab a corner of an image and distort it as it was moved around. Changing the dimensions and viewpoints turned them from copies of images into ones with a contrasting viewpoint. This led us to see items from the collection in a completely new light, as they were squashed and stretched to our minds content. We then experimented with moving the projectors so that the images were placed on interesting surfaces, like the corners of the ceiling. This split the image on to three different planes, which distorted the images even more.

Krisjanis went on to create a large scale Projection Mapping installation at the Library, a 16 x 9 m  dynamic piece on the south wall. He used a selection of images from the collection, in a much more complicated and detailed way, as only a master of a craft can do.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. The combination of modern technology and images of ancient artwork really did make me realise that there is always more than one way of looking at everything.

What’s On for January – April 2017

Highlights for 2016.  We have had a great year of activities in 2016 with our teens and highlights include workshops with fashion designer Rebecca Marsden, Japanese tea ceremony with Akiko Kidokoro and Emily Waszak, electronics workshop with Make Create Innovate to our annual visit to Dublin Maker and Festival of Curiosity in July, ending the year with theatre and science with rocket scientist Niamh Shaw, paper plane launcher with Dublin Make Shop, Science Gallery Dublin and projection mapping with our first maker in residence Krisjanis Rijnieks.
