The Way Things Were is a depiction of my childhood home on the kibbutz in Israel. Following a five-week exploration of the meaning of home through journaling, reading, sketching and sculpting, this miniature model became a metaphoric rendition of the collective home of my childhood during the 1970’s and 1980’s. This process took place in the first half of the course Creativity, Symbolism, and Metaphor at Antioch university Seattle.
