Ruby Lounge at the Rubenstein Arts Center 2020 Campus Drive Durham,
This winter, the Innovation Co-Lab, in partnership with Duke Arts, is inviting two local Durham artists, Saleem Reshamwala (aka Kid Ethnic), and Tarish Pipkins (aka Jeghetto), to join us for an exciting, experimental, ambitious week of creativity. Over the course of this week, students will work with Tarish to learn about his puppet-making practices, how technology can play a role in low-fidelity/analog making, and help produce an army of customized puppets with some of the Co-Lab Studio tools. Simultaneously, Saleem will lead some workshops on filmmaking and storytelling, and provide some insight into his Emmy-nominated work focusing on culture, ethnicity, and music. The residency will culminate in a collaborative film shot over the course of the week featuring student-made puppets.
For the kickoff, join Tarish and Saleem as they break down their previous collaborations, discuss creativity, making, and how to shoot music videos of puppets.
