A collaboration between media artist Jodi Darby and Open School East middle school students.

Join us for the unveiling of NEO | MYTHOS, an outdoor video projection made in collaboration with media artist Jodi Darby and the middle school students of Open School East.

While learning about multimedia platforms, videography, animation, audio recording and projection mapping with Jodi, Open School East students examined the concept of mythos and oral histories while challenging tropes and stereotypes to reimagine and recreate their own mythologies.

The evening will also feature DJ sets from Open School East students and Lapaushi of Latinx femme DJ collective Noche Libre, a multicultural dessert feast and a photo booth.

This program is funded with support from the Juan Young Trust and the Oregon Community Foundation.

Outdoor projection mapping support is provided by Sarah Turner, Nanda D'Agostino (Mobile Projection Unit) and Hilary Tsai (PNCA '19).
