About

On January 6, 2014, there was a video projection on the tower facade of El Segundo High School produced by one of our STING artists-in-residence, Mauricio Abad, and ESMoA in collaboration with El Segundo High School students. Mauricio met with students from El Segundo High School to create this project in a truly collaborative fashion. Throughout the course of these meetings, Mauricio asked students what it’s like to go to their school; what are the expectations, challenges, and opportunities? What are the important symbols of their school; what matters to them? Working together, Mauricio and student participants shaped the project both conceptually and visually. Students in art and Media classes created the animations for the video mapping display, and Mauricio tied it all together with his conceptual input and unique vision.
