The Student Body

Lots of Dots is a proprietary carpet designed by Joy Carpets & Co. for classrooms in schools specializing in disciplinarian approaches to education, often concentrated in economically disadvantaged communities. Stacked on a set of school chairs beside the carpet are copies of an 88-page booklet tracing the aesthetic, social, political, and epistemological undercurrents latent in the carpet.

Over the course of the exhibition the carpet serves as the site of workshops with children related to themes in the booklet.
