DA#27 – Nature’s Storytelling

How many stories can we find in the enlarged and projected image of nature?

The projection of enlarged nature becomes the backdrop for games and the invention of fantastic stories…..After collecting natural materials in their surroundings and collecting them in a box, that will be the transitional object that will enable children to continue experimentations started at school to be continued at home and vice versa, children will discover new properties of these materials through their observation with a digital microscope. Attaching the microscope to the projector, the enlargements give rise to imaginative and evocative environments, with which the children can play, interact and develop a character that will be brought home for the development of a common chain story.
