Jennifer and Kevin McCoy work in a variety of electronic media, including video, photographs, and computers. They have made dioramas of actual or imagined events and used video and sound to create a narrative environment. During a gallery tour with families, the McCoys explored Alexander Calder’s sculptures and installations with kids and parents. Sharing a slideshow of their work with families, the artists made connections to their own experience of creating performative sculptures. They asked families to make their own miniature sculptural narratives inspired by Calder’s Circus, which were then photographed and documented by the artists and families together.
