"The Paper TV" is a screen made of paper that can be viewed on mobile phones via an augmented reality App. During the workshops, participants create their own channels in the Paper TV using techniques such as green screen, collage, spatial effects, music, video recording, and editing. Each workshop invites a local multidisciplinary artist.
Paper TV is an interdisciplinary project between media production and augmented reality, targeting children and youth between the ages of 9 and 16. The aim of the project is to impart, develop, and support media skills, giving youth the tools to express their ideas, share their stories, and actively engage with others in a collaborative environment.
The Paper TV is a non-profit art project founded by artist Solafa Hijazi. The first series of workshops was held in Berlin, Germany, and co-developed by artist Caram Kapp.
The second series of workshops was held in Gaziantep, Turkey, co-developed by Kassem Abrsh.
