The second edition of A Piece of Me challenged the New World School of the Arts high school visual arts honors class to develop, produce and install paper-based site-specific artworks in response to a video produced a decade earlier by alumnus Hernan Bas.

The student artists of A Piece of Me visit the studio of their alumnus Hernan Bas to describe their projects in pre-production

The students responded to a single-channel, 90-second, black-and-white, silent, 4:3 ratio Bas video in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, "All By Myself" (2004, courtesy of the artist and Frederic Snitzer Gallery). Their self-assigned teams each created an installation materially antithetical to the electronic source artwork: completely paper-based. They were asked not to use traditional pigments or mark-making, but otherwise employ any production technique and method at any scale within the bounds of the art fair booth. The three new installation artworks, completed in-situ, were presented together with the Hernan Bas video.

Production advice and support by Brian Burkhardt, Richard Haden.
