Experimental educational models

This series of action-based works explore various educational models in a manner that reconceptualizes and validates the notion of experience as teacher. By inviting environments to redefine simple ideas–-work, play, art–-we engage others in engaging themselves. Using simple actions like game-playing and kite flying, we redesign the parameters of play in a considered manner that creates a spontaneous space for building relationships. Pedagogical emphasis on exploration as education allow groups to design a curriculum that suits their proclivities and thusly, curiosity becomes the enthusiastic engine behind learning.
