While working at a local elementary school one child came to my attention. He would sit in class and create wonderful works of distraction for himself. This clearly shows him to be a hands-on learner and more interested in objects physical relationship to each other. The traditional teaching methods of utilizing pencil and paper meant little and could not provide him with the stimuli needed to learn. His teachers saw this as a display of his lack of discipline, laziness and inability to do the work. My intention with this work is to allow the viewer to see these objects as the child does and question the validity of contemporary teaching standers.
