Life is not only different from its parts, it is something more, something deeper, something greater than the sum; artists express this depth that would not otherwise be seen through a multitude of media--in particular Godfrey Reggio’s “music video,” Powaqqatsi, and Vivaldi’s musical composition, “The Four Seasons.” An understanding of society comes together with an examination of its components in close proximity.

    This is shown through Loris Malaguzzi’s Reggio Emilia model and the idea of child guided learning.
