Throughout the we/customize project we’ve gotten caught up in the exchanging ideas and skills within and between social networks. There isn’t a focus on how we learn informally from the people who are close to us when we’re young. This has made it easy to overlook that many of our skills were planted by those willing to take time to teach us even when we didn’t realize that was what was happening because we were having fun.
This image is from a grandparent doing just that. He developed a project with his grandson that is fun at its root, but in the process of sharing his passion the grandfather is also teaching his abilities and aesthetic eye.
