Identity Technology and Storytelling

Lina Maria Giraldo is an interactive media artist and storyteller towards social change. This year she’s been part of the City of Boston Artist in Residency. Since November she’s been working with the Hyde Park Community at the Boston Center Youth and Family at the Municipal Building.

Her goal as an artist in residency is to work with community members and teach electronics and coding to create ownership and understand Identity throughout technology. After all this hard work, they created poetry using code and built video cameras that they used to interview the Hyde Park Community. During this process, they connected generations of youth and seniors and built and created stories together.

Now it’s time to show all the amazing work that they created: the cameras they built, their digital creations and a wonderful portrait of the Hyde Park Community.
