Wong's Scottish Meat Pies

Well we just wrapped up the historical project at school. Toronto is a very multi- cultural city and we have a real melting pot of people and cultures in our classroom. I expected to see the students gravitate to their own cultures.  A Chinese student chose Greek, an African chose Italian, a Dutch woman chose primitive South American culture and on it went with different projects from around the world.

The students were to replicate a historical object and then make a contemporary version of the object and not stray too far from the original concept. I think for the most part the historical objects were bang on but the contemporary version takes a gigantic creative leap.  I will be curious to see if that historical object contemporary version is still peculating in their gray matter and will surface again new and improved.
