Started new project today !

Its about children and how we have created this unnatural lifestyle for them,tethered to the computer and sitting in front of the Tv. We have given no thought to free spaces for children to play and explore .We adults decide everything for them and thats a bad idea if you ask me.
What they need is frequent,unregulated,self directed contact with people and places beyond the immediate spheres of family and school and the chance to learn from their mistakes, on their own.
Inspired by Colin Ward, the 1970's anarchist's book Streetwork,the exploding school and Last child in the woods by Richard louv
