    I See Me

    I See Me - An Art Collaboration

    In the autumn term 2005, seventy students with special educational needs prepare to leave school to move into a brand new College. It's exciting but daunting.

    To help them make the move, they will work with a professional artist to create personal identity strips: colourful and imaginative collages featuring fingerprints, hand prints and photographs.

    Hanging from a large steel hoop, the strips form a mobile sculpture which takes pride of place in the College entrance, ready to welcome them on their arrival.

    'I See Me' is a 15 minute video which documents this unique art collaboration. As well as tapping into the creative process, it offers an insight into a group of differently-abled young people who are often misunderstood - and even stigmatised.

    'I See Me' was part-funded by the Brighton and Hove City Arts Commission. It has been selected for screening at CINECITY - the Brighton Film Festival 2006.
