Sandrine Han: What do you think about the InSEA Congress this year?

Marylou Goldrosen: The Conference site at Moholy Nagy School of Design was special. I sent the photos of stages of car design to my nephew who loved cars. I loved the graffiti mural at the coffee meeting place because of the tiny symbols and blue/orange color contrast. Put this on InSEA web site.

Best Exhibition: Our stories—Works of Art from Border of Misery: Paintings by Hungarian Roma Children from the Depths of Poverty. The art work was colorful, meaningful tales, with multiple grounds and suprizes (horse with 8 legs and X-ray views of creatures inside creatures in one tale). At InSEA Conference I Loved the Places we visited, such as the Children’s Museum with its large Yurt, decorated with children’s hand prints and images on material on top and their paintings surrounding it. The guide told us that the master artist worked alongside the child. At times the master would finish the child’s abstract coloring (e.g. add a lion face) or child would imitate the master painting.

As far as presentations, not one struck me in total, but snippets of what was said became meaningful:

In response to Diederick’s Shoenau’s keynote [Art is meant for communication and development of 21st c skills], Andrea Karpati announced, “Make yourself important for society!”

I liked Robert W. Sweeny’s Complex Digital Visual Systems (Prezi demo) Session 3 because I want to try it myself. My student Jennie Evans actually introduced me to it. She gave the paper on The Pet Society {Six Year Olds on this virtual world]
