The exhibition or display, whichever term you prefer, apart from serving to give me greater visibility and to communicate with others, is also a wonderful opportunity for encounter and verification.
For me it was fascinating, astonishing and intriguing to see the reactions of such mixed publics.
The adults: retiring or outgoing, closed or communicative, sceptical or enthusiastic, approached “my game" and, for some seconds, perhaps, felt themselves naked or at least clothed in different garments.
The children. The true revelation for my curiosity. They faced things without our trite superstructures, without our “grown-up” mental, practical and commercial prejudices or schemes or attitudes. They are direct, true, frank and (perhaps) a lot less confused and unprepared than we think. They have no problems understanding, they know. They are still free.
