It first piqued my interest while I was a primary student in New Jersey. I was sitting at my table, visibly grumpy, while the other children cheerily threw paste and pasta onto a sheet of poster paper. I had just finished my macaroni man, but instead of proudly wanting to show it to the teacher, I sat there confused. I intuitively knew there was something more to art than that. However, for the next few months, this was the caliber of work that was expected of us.
