Christina Kral is an instant community developer, experience engineer, experimental storyteller, grassroots documentatrice and a constant scholar. Christina was an Eyebeam resident with a particular focus on youth participation models. She has designed a series of story-telling experiments which cross the boundaries of truth, fiction and abstraction. She gave workshops at universities and rural communities around the US and Mexico. During this year’s Digital Day Camp at Eyebeam, she collaborated with Adriana Valdez Young and instigated a pop-up party with sixteen sixteen year olds to build an embracing culture around demographically and socially divided urban landscapes. This summer within the digital arts residency at Columbia University she’ll inhabit portable art spaces and create a platform of temporary liberation and social exchange and explore education alternatives through art and food.
