Juneteenth: Visual and Oral History

A scrollformance of a web page (hosted on newhive.com), this piece was created for an undergraduate course in the Art Practice department at UC Berkeley called Data Cultures, taught by Greg Niemeyer. The piece discusses the history behind the holiday, Juneteenth, through the new media concepts of “Diffusion” and “Resonance.” Written and Narrated by Reginold Royston, PhD. For the class, students were able to access the newhive pages, and remix the content to generate their own stories about Juneteenth.
