THE BLOCKS OF LIFE & DEATH
mixed media collage
on vintage wooden alphabet blocks
1 3/4” square each
Block-playing offers an open-ended, creative and valuable learning experience. It offers children freedom to explore, take apart and put back together any block-based creation they can think of. Playing with blocks with other children helps kids to make friends and learn how to cooperate. When playing with blocks, children can build structures from their minds that did not exist or re-create a template that fills them with awe.
Playing with these blocks can not only educate about life, but can also teach about the seedier side of life, that of death and the hereafter. Images of mediums, psychics, skulls, devils, the evil eye, anatomical diagrams, and more draw the viewer in to explore another side of life.
