Patterns of Play

I am embarking on a new art project documenting the patterns of play created by my youngest son. My interest in this project stems from his difficulties with imaginative play. My son is known for lining up his toys, a red flag for the Autism Spectrum Disorder he is challenged with. In my new series, "Patterns of Play", I aim to slow down, reach his eye level and glimpse into his creativity. While I have no dispute with his diagnosis, the notion of what is consider imaginary seems limited by the neuro typical who have defined what proper play looks like. This is our collaboration. It should be noted that I never disrupt his setups.
