In Place, explores issues of location and permanence. The group of images presented here is comprised of a series of diptychs that uses hand drawn linocut maps juxtaposed to digital landscape images.

The Creative Learning Design Framework is an arts based, learning design process. The Creative Learning Design Framework is comprised of three components, Visual Knowing, Visual Connections and Visual Effects. Each of the three components serves a different function; Visual Knowing explores prior learning programs and future-learning needs, Visual Connections begins the process of collectively shaping new learning programs and the focus of the Visual Effects component is the development of an evaluation process for the newly developed programs.
Within each of the three components, visual art based creative process exercises are utilized. An important part of these creative process exercises are the guiding and reflective questions used in each component. The creative process exercises used in Creative Learning Design Framework vary depending on the subject or focus of the learning program or service. Because the Creative Learning Design Framework is so flexible it can also be used to revise and revive existing learning programs.
Below are images of the book from the Brooklyn Art Library's Canvas Project. The Canvas Project is an international community art project that included 1100 artists from around the globe. Each artist was provided a 4"x4" canvas and a prompt word. The prompt word I received was SHADE.
There was also an exhibition held at the Brooklyn Art Library in February.
