tori (Text & Video Curator) Featured Comment:"I really love how this is written, Sarah, and it fits Marie Bee’s picture so well - you really captured the feel of the photo. The rhythm of the poem is unusual and fun to read out loud - staccoto-esque in places with the mixing of vowel sounds ("suitcase living / skyscraper nomad" is delightfully tongue-twisting) but the well-placed rhymes and longer lines really keep the reader on their toes. The way that it’s written reflects the mix of frustration, emptiness and repetition within the life of the girl - really well done."
The fourth - and final - topic we’re going to be collaborating on for the series of social impact videos we’re teaming w/ Pivot to make is RE: Public and Private. Contribute all your art & ideas on this media topic to the collaboration.

What do you make Public? What do you keep Private? Be specific.
Do you post anything of yours (writing, photos, etc.) on any Social Media Outlets? Why or why not?
Do you post any of your thoughts or art somewhere Private, like a journal?
How do you decide what you make Public and what you keep Private? Or do you not think about it that much? Explain.
Have you ever experienced any consequences for sharing something Publicly? Did you regret it? Explain.
Have you ever shared something Publicly that you had kept Private for a long time? Did you experience positive results from doing so? What happened?
For the past two years we’ve had Resident Curators from the community to assist in featuring records. Resident Curators have been hand picked based on the artistry of their contributions as well as their taste in recommendations. This initiative has been a huge success not only to our community at large, but to our creative process.
We are really pleased to announce today that we’re expanding our team of Resident Curators for 2014 by adding these 13 new Curators:
For our RE: Patterns episode, let’s start writing and illustrating a Short Film that will show how history has repeated itself during the years 1666, 1910, and 2000.
Here’s how you can contribute:
WRITERS: Write a Script based on THIS TEXT RECORD that interweves the 3 stories (from 1666, 1910, and 2000) & includes these 3 Characters in each iteration: The PROPHET, The BELIEVER, and THE DOUBTER (all based on historical characters.)
VISUAL ARTISTS: Illustrate Historical Characters from each time period: 1666, 1910, and 2000.
