CLASS OF 2015
We buy them the prettiest, we insist that they are kept just so, clothes, hair, skin - we want the playthings we give our children to be kept pristine, our idea of perfect.
But how much can be learned by just observing! What do the eyes of a child see, a child who is by definition pristine, not altered, not cajoled, not brainwashed, simply pure. The child sees that unblemished, 'perfect' plaything as incomplete. They add color and indelible detail with marker, paint, makeup and pencil. They remove hair, clothes and accessories with scissors and through wear. And through this transformation they wind up with the 'imperfect' that becomes a best friend.
Class of 2015 is a study of these dear playthings, reflections of the children that created them, embodiments of the love with which they were endeared by little fingers.
