The Gatherade Stand (Nettle Soda Documentation)

Gili Rappaport facilitated a socially-engaged artwork with the students of the Martin Luther King School Elementary titled, The Gatherade Stand. There were several components to their social artwork such as poetry writing, music making, and creating a nettle soda emblazoned with the well-known Gatorade symbol. The Gatorade symbolism was a pop gesture, a throwback to the work of Corita Kent. I collaborated with the artist and the students to document the freshly canned soda. The images were captured on an SX-70 Polaroid Land camera. Students naturally grew interested in the function of the camera. Although, originally unplanned, teaching them about the SX-70 camera became part of the collaborative process alongside composing the images.
