BUILDING BLOCKs 

2020


As children we constantly imagine that we’re adults with real jobs. Pretending to be teachers, doctors, writers, builders, explorers and caregivers. Playing is our growing brains way of processing what what we’ve seen, heard and learned. Our play is challenging, generative, engaging and exhausting work, but we love it. Then we grow up and forget our work can be all the exciting things play once was, making work a laborious task. If I can carry anything with me into my career it would be the spark and imagination that comes along with playing. 

 

In order to blur the line between work and play, for myself and others, I began to collect stories from my peers and other professionals. The ways people made connections to their younger selves was so genuine and personal. Combining these voice recordings with my ways of creating and storytelling I have begun on a series of stop-motion animations to illustrate another layer of the narrative. By acting out these moments with handmade props and sets, I can channel open-ended play and imagination in my work. 

 

This series continues to evolve and grow into a myriad of memories and foreshadowings. I hope to inspire others, no matter what career or profession, to be more in touch with their younger selves, the self that could play with no restrictions or insecurities. Listen to that self, they’re smarter and more intuitive than you think. By building off the foundation we construct as children, we can carry that spark of curiosity, joy, and drive throughout our lives into.
