Finding patterns

There is meaning in every shot - a feeling expressed, a memory remembered, a showcase of beauty, a moment captured in time. Find the patterns amidst the chaos; find meaning in the mundane.

I'm an 'audiovisual' person - I learn and work best when there is sound and imagery involved. I believe the same for education: effective photographs, designs, and exhibition displays not only grab attention to a message but also invoke an eagerness to learn and engage.
