I AM Speaker Project Opening Reception

SAIC partnered with CCA students and staff in a series of STEAM workshops that lead to the creation of a public art piece known as “I AM.” The approach is that oral stories are a type of collected data. The “I AM” project includes a solar-powered speaker encased in limestone rock in PermaPark. The recordings are played through the speaker with the collection of narratives encouraging positive self-reflection and serves as a testament to the community’s shared values and aspirations.
