Using archived personal materials, Blocks, Childs Play series juxtaposes belongings a child would use in play with the artifacts preserved from a war, such as VMail, medals earned, maps and rubbings. As a child and father share a home, these salvaged items live side by side, some buried in wood or plaster and some buried in plain sight.
