A Dangerous Proposition
Public Education is a relatively new idea in human history, and it is easy to forget how radical a notion it is, and to overlook its transformative potential. A Dangerous Proposition evokes the metaphor of students as ‘empty vessels’, and uses school furniture/equipment, water and exposed electric light bulbs in an installation that reminds us that education is simultaneously powerful and precarious.
