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. A pdf of the booklet is available here.

The carpet also serves as the site of workshops with children related to themes in the booklet.
