Dreaming of Maps and Globes

I spent ten days in April in residence at a public school working with second graders.  We brainstormed ideas for an installation, working with the theme: maps and globes.   Fifty students participated in the project. Each contributed a small model of a city or building made with paper mache, paint, found packaging materials, fabrics, glitter and beads.  The small models were attached to a giant globe model with a cave-like entrance on one side.  Visitors could enter the installation, which resembled a model of the earth turned inside-out.
