Educate Together School,

% for Art commission. 2011

On completion we had two panels of fresnel lenses, digital projections and 8 magical reality boxes. Four of these were designed to display children's artworks and be easily changeable.

At the start of the project we ran workshops to encourage the children to experiment with mirrors and magnifying lenses, exploring symmetry, reflection and mirror images with mirrored card. (left)

The pupils took photographs around the area of their favourite places and we discussed these in an on-line photo forum to select the imagery we would use. Several thousand photographs and comments were uploaded. They included a great many engaging and thoughtful comments that became the source material for a book that completed the project.
