Hemingway invented the 6-word memoir: “For sale, baby shoes, never worn” – a life’s story told in 6 words. Smith Magazine popularized this form and has published two anthologies worth of 6-word memoirs by authors, celebrities, and regular folks. Whether it’s in 6 words or 10 words or a sentence, these micro memoirs are a great way to work on self-awareness and self-expression; trying to capture a maximal vision using minimal words. In this Challenge, your team will create one set of individual six word memoirs and one collaborative six word memoir that represents the group. Each memoir will be photographed – the author(s) with a visual rendering of his/her memoir – and arranged in a montage of shots that last up to ninety seconds. Why this time constraint? Using only six words forces you to economize your thinking; to boil your impressions – of self or others – down to an embryonic, but powerful idea. In essence, it forces you to confront language and word choice in a new way. However, when these memoirs are edited together around a theme, the result is a collective portraiture of a unique group of students in a particular moment in time.
