SEARRASEARRA, by Searra Sasawan

SEARRASEARRA, known as a 25-year-old marble girl, marbleizes everything she owns. The marble girl is an outgoing girl who has a natural sense of humor. She thinks she is a celebrity, and she tries to review all the products that she buys to show how good the products are in a humorous way; and yet, all the products turn to marble as soon as she purchases them.






Glitch by Zoe Berger

zoe_glitchWelcome Scratchers!
This is the intro lecture in the Glitch Programming Course held at the Mt Vernon Public Library, March 21-25, 2016.

Glitch explores the existing structures of public education and its systems of evaluation. Enacted as a one-week computer programming workshop at the elementary school level and a website presentation of that event, Glitch experiments with education- as-art-form on many levels through the design, administration, teaching, and evaluation of a class.
