In a project inspired by our exhibition “People Who Came to My House” Henninger High School students photographed and interviewed the non-teaching staff members of their school. These are the people who students often have little opportunity to interact with yet without them, the school would not run.
Students in Ms. Rombel’s and Ms. Lizzio’s art classes worked with teaching- artist and professional photographer Marilu Lopez-Fretts to create this exhibition.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.

Created by Christine Chin, The Genetically Modified Foods Kitchen explores the controversial technology that allows us to transfer genes between species. Part human and part vegetable, Chin’s Vegetable Human Hybrids make visible the usually invisible process of genetic modification. In the familiar context of a cookbook and a cooking show, these creations bring concerns about the ethics and politics of biotechnology into the domestic space. Playing with both humor and the grotesque, Chin’s photographs encourage people to consider how technology affects our society and our dinner plates.
Christine Chin is an artist whose work makes ironic commentary on contemporary issues of technology and the environment. She has addressed artificial intelligence, healthcare and alternative energy. She has exhibited at the New York Hall of Science, Art Basel Miami, and Canon Communication Space, Beijing. She has an MFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico and teaches in the Department of Art and Architecture at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
