Short Description:

English Lesson (Something We Learn From One Another) is a collaborative multimedia book project. The work is inspired by the stories delivered by my classmates in an English class in New York City in 2007.  The students come with diverse nationalities, religions, and cultures. In this collaborative project with our teacher, Ms. Andetrie Smith, we created stories using the proverbs, idioms, and aspects of American culture that we had picked up in the classroom. I created this set of work to capture the essence of our stories: the beautiful past memories, something that lives in our minds in the present, along with our hopes for the future. This narrative collection, which takes the form of both book and animated video, is what I call “new English lessons,” quite different from those found in Standard English textbooks.
