PhotoVoice Eagles With Cameras: “Project on Identity” Who Are We? Session Three

PhotoVoice Eagles With Cameras: “Project on Identity” Who Are We? Session Three

This past Wednesday, December 4, 2013 we were delighted to have our special guest “J Sqwerl” also known as Jonathan Higuchi from the Internationally known Seattle b-boy collective Massive Monkee’s Crew. He gave a talk about his personal identity and the roles that creativity his family, and the city of Seattle play in shaping his identity. He encouraged students to think outside the box and really dig deep into their own identities to find something unique.

Students took time to free write and turn our session two brainstorms into actual sentences that they will use to create the artist statement portion of their projects. Some students would share their sentence and ideas with the entire class.

We Reviewed how to use the camera’s before heading outside for a mini scavenger hunt. We were able to take advantage of the weather and and allow them time to practice with the camera’s before they head out on their own.

Students really enjoyed the activities and hands on use.

HUGE thank you to Jonathan Higuchi for his time, assistance, and inspirational words. Thank you to Jackie for her assistance and to Diana for her assistance and beautiful Photo’s. Until next time. Eagles With Camera’s.

In China, Beware: A Camera May Be Watching You

This article is an interesting listen. It reminded me of an article I posted a few months back about Microsoft helping the NYPD do pretty much the same thing (See

I guess the only difference is the United States has not quite reached the programs full potential. Either that are we are much more quiet about it. Nevertheless this should not scare anyone for visiting China however it should wake people up about what is soon to come in a city near you. As I mentioned earlier when the news first came out about NYPD, if it was created by Microsoft you better believe Washington State metropolitan cities like Bellevue and Seattle are not far from trying to get these laws implemented. Seeing as how the Seattle Police Department already has a drone, I mean why would not they have the technology to spy on anyone they please?
