Today’s project is inspired by Gail Tremblay, an Onondaga & Mi’kmaq conteporary artist and educator. Tremblay weaves “traditional” baskets out of scraps of old movie film. Tremblay uses these old film reels to re-write stereotypical narratives of Native peoples. What are some common film narratives you know? How would you change them? Today in the studio create a sculpture or weaving out of film and experiment with this new material and practice!
