The Nana Nest

Working on a project for the grandparents and parents of children with complex disabilities recently has reminded me of the potential buzz to be found in engaging with the surreal. The families quickly burst into action, transforming piles of textiles and sticks into random hand made objects which transcend any sort of representative storytelling but are inherently meaningful. Thinking about how to share these children’s stories has helped me to understand what’s important when communicating through objects.
