Moving to a workshop of 3 days with Lucy Sarneel, “Objects have social life

Here you go girls, collect things that you keep around you, it could be anything, from a piece of paper to a tree in a pot, so you can bring it to school with you.

Think about what you have collected, select some of them, make the connection, find the meaning, then make it bigger.
