The Way The World Works

The Way The World Works is an interactive installation of thirty-two blocks (each one is 12”x6”x3”), similar to the cardboard bricks that children play with.  The blocks were created collaboratively, with each block serving as an oversized postcard from Motherland. One side of each block holds an abstract photograph taken by a participant, and on the other is text culled from writings and interviews we did about our experiences during our first year as mothers. Each one has a faux postage stamp and ‘postmark’ from Motherland, while the sides of the bricks are collaged with found text and illustrations from parenting manuals. The blocks are designed to be touched and read by children and adults, creating new juxtapositions and creations as the audience plays with the piece.
