Geolocation | Art Activity: Captions

Wed Mar 03, 2021

We asked our spring 2021 intern Desmond to complete one of the activities in our Teaching Resource packet created for the Larson Shindelman: Geolocation exhibition. Desmond chose this prompt: “Larson Shindelman create photographs based off of tweets (short captions). For this activity, refer to the photographs in this packet and write your own tweets in 280 characters or less to accompany each. You can also create your own hashtags to accompany the caption and photo.” Scroll through this post to see the captions that Desmond created for the Geolocation pieces. How do the new captions change the way you view the photographs?
