Above is a video that is part of the gallery installation. Audio collage recorded in Alum Rock and Mayfair in San Jose.Developed in partnership with Around the Table, the San Jose Museum of Art's community initiative, A Serving of Shapes weaves together art, history, and technology to reflect on Silicon Valley's past identity as an agricultural hub and its present identity as a center of innovation. Through a combination of public participatory workshops and a museum exhibition, artist Corinne Okada Takara engages the community in a dialogue that explores the relationship between this region's agricultural past and its technology-infused present. Workshops are held at the de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University and two teen workshops will be held at the Dr. Roberto Cruz Library and the Mayfair Community Center in San Jose.
