The start of a great student collaboration: Watch our Vines!

Even though May 9th is a while away, Ali and I are excited for the Open Science Cafe Event featuring New York Times Graphics Director, Steve Duenes. We are so excited that we have been working on some fun Vine videos in preparation for the event.

We have been meeting every Wednesday for the past few weeks to make the 7 second videos. We chose Vine as our medium because of how quick, easy and fun it is to make and to watch. It only takes a few seconds of your time!

“Vine is a quick and easy way for students to hear and know about events,” Ali said. And as an Art and Design senior getting ready to graduate this spring, Ali knows how little time students have during the quarter.

“Students live on social media,” Ali said, explaining another reason why we chose to use Vine.

Our  most recent video was inspired by Dead Week. With all the late nights, studying for hours and the stress in general that Dead Week can cause, Ali and I wanted to give students a quick distraction to brighten their week.

Here are the Vines we have posted so far:

Week 1:

Week 2:

Week 3:

Be on the lookout for more Vines next quarter! In the meantime, you can watch other Vines I’ve worked on, including profiles of artists’ books from our Special Collections and Archives.
