Artist Alice Cooper has made a short film that combines the voices, stories and artworks of young people from Edinburgh, the Isle of Iona and Kolkata, India.
As part of the collaborative film-making process, she has spoken to twelve young people (over the phone) and recorded their answer to the question 'What do you see outside your window?'
She then paired up the young people and asked them to draw or paint an image based on what the children in another area had described (so for example, a child in Iona would draw the view described by a child in Kolkata).
Then, with Gavin McCabe, her creative collaborator and sound engineer, they put all the images and stories together to make a short film.
Many thanks to Stephen Lee (Headteacher, Iona Primary School), Tanya NicLochlainn (Teacher, Corstorphine Primary School) and Ruchira Das (Founder & Director, ThinkArts) for connecting Alice with the children. And an even bigger thanks to all the children and their families who took part. How would you describe the view from your window? Can you describe it to a friend or family member and ask them to draw how they imagine it?
