For a Capital Build Project for Winter Garden Primary School the artworks explore a sense of an opening, doorway or journey to another world, place or culture. This is to be represented by the introduction of artworks that take on the appearance of a false door or window. These artworks reflect a theme that is found in children’s literature in books by C S Lewis and Lewis Carol, for example. The theme of travelling somewhere in one’s imagination is a fun and exciting, is part of the creative process, and is a process that children employ throughout the day as part of their learning, 

For this project Tom explored our sense of spacial awareness referencing the works of M.C.Escher and architectural blue prints.
