Growth Table is one of a series of objects and spaces modified from a variety of familiar types to sponsor specific activities for adults as well as children.
The Growth Table is activated when placed in a public space because children will impulsively and utterly un-self-consciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. Provided with spaces for people of all sizes, adults will eventually jump in and draw – perhaps acting on a virtually universal memory of thousands of hours of childhood art-making.
