Bringing Forward The Past

“Properly worried over, properly cared for and remembered, these things keep coming up,” erupting and interrupting of their own accord, asking for attention, needing something from me, it seems.” (Jardine – On the While of Things)

What Is An Artifact?

“Children are profoundly concrete, imaginal, playful, bodily, and substantive in their ways of knowing. Artifacts are concrete and fleshy and substantial. They allow the children to connect with something that has Earthly, bodily texture and tactility.
They are memorial, somehow. Memory is somehow already housed in such things, "incarnated," if you will." (see Gadamer 1989)

Looking At Each Other

Using the self portraits we have completed what story do they have to tell? Where have you come from and how are we now connected as a community at St. Edmund? Using your self portrait, complete the phrase, I am ____________ and I am from ______________. As a class we will write the beginning and ending of this story. Our self-portraits and statements will be compiled together to tell the story of our community.

Connected... what we think

What does it mean to go home? Why do we leave the comforts of home? What do we do once we get to where we are going to preserve home? How do we stay “connected?”

What does connected mean to you? Think of a word that tells or shows tells what it means to be connected? What image could you use to help provide the viewer a stronger image? How have we connected as a community to tell a new story?
