Moon Shadows

Beautiful! Superb! Very therapeutic! Might we have been looking at the same moon on the same day and time? It is such a capturing piece. Thank you for your artistic endeavor that enriches our lives and journeys.  - Su Eimer

To stop and see the beauty that exists in our environments and to awaken our inner artist as we recover from one journey to the next is expressed in this film. Thank you for the uplifting message.

Art Response Activity with Roots Grow Together

On Valentine’s Day at the University of Illinois, Digital Tapestries was given the privilege to facilitate ‘Roots Grow Together’, an art response activity with Dr. Rooshey. The class focuses on past historical trauma and current conditions (including mental health topics) that impact Asian American communities. I was deeply impressed by the students’ abilities to convey their unique visions. We began the class by having students trace their hands, then they wrote down 5 of their most prominent past influences on each of their fingers. After showing our short film, ‘Roots Grow Together’, we had the students turn their hands into tree roots to symbolize future growth. The goals of this project were to: 1) increase awareness of how the past impacts our intersectional identities, and 2) encourage students to envision the type of future self-progression they want to develop.
