Norwegian artist and filmmaker Ane Hjort Guttu’s How to Become a Non-Artist (2007) looks at small arrangements of everyday objects made by her four-year-old son and offers an in-depth commentary about these inadvertent works of art, which are gradually becoming less noticeable, until they end up as “readymades”.

Dutch artist and filmmaker Manon de Boer’s The Untroubled Mind (2016) is made up of a collection of images of her son’s constructions filmed over a period of three years. The duration of each shot is around 20 seconds, the length of time you can film with a Bolex 16mm camera when winding it manually.

Quite independently of each other, both artists became fascinated by their children’s approach to construction and making, leading each artist to speculate on the ways in which young children express themselves in their home environments.
