Philosophy for kids + forced perspective

Brila, a youth camp that encourages critical thinking and teaches the basics of philosophical enquiry, asked me to come do another session on how we can use our cameras to trick your brain.

I got to meet the kids and we spoke about whether ‘a photo could lie’ and other noggin scratchers. Then I organized the activities. They tried to guess what some super zoomed in things were (and they were all wrong!). Then we looked at things very closely to notice lots of details we don’t normally see. We then started the main event! Outside we went to use dinosaurs, toys, glasses and more to create forced perspective photos. Dinosaurs attacking you, fingers squishing you and more!
