Comments on the Origins of Science, Art, and Writing

The following images are from a summer camp in Kyoto, Japan, in 2005. Children began imitating an adult who was grinding and smoothing pebbles on boulders, and then began imitating each-other. The children discovered different colours using different stones, and left their markings on the boulders.

The markings seem to be natural answers to unspoken questions, and signs of science beginning. Is this Art? Is this Writing?

Is this Humanity in Nature (In a Concrete Ditch)?!

With thanks to all the children!
