A festive thought

Visual metaphor in children’s learning processes

How many visual metaphors exist and are possible in everyday life?
The atelier invites you to find unexpected combinations between known objects, seeking an unexpected relationship capable of communicating a new message.

“A festive thought” is an exhibition telling the story of research, realised with children aged 2-6, which aimed to make visible the thinking processes activated by producing and understanding visual metaphor.
