Babies Making Hummus

TheĀ children had their first experience making things with real food. We were a bit unsure how it was going to go; eating, mouthing, drool, boogers, but thenā€¦ The children were really excited about this new opportunity to explore food in a different way. They helped add each ingredient and even got a little taste! All of the elements provided a sensory experience.

Sound: the food processor
Sight: ingredients
Taste: nibble here & there
Feel: each ingredient in their little hands
Smell: the aroma of fresh garlic and cumin.

The added benefit of eating hummus that they created themselves is always a very rewarding experience as well!

Wave, Line, Dot

Wave, Line, Dot is a short film, drawn by Ruthie Vargas during a Sound and Light Studio teachers’ workshop. The soundtrack was created by Older Toddlers, by imagining what sounds ‘a wave’, ‘a line’, and ‘a dot’, would make and creating them with only their bodies and the room, but without other instruments. The formal limitations placed on this project built a scaffolding for the simple beauty you see in this collaboration. Enjoy.
