Ari continues the notion of family by turning his attention to his immediate surroundings. This includes the world of his two sons, who using blankets to create three-dimensional landscapes of Lego figures and battle scenes create a microcosm of domestic life, which parallels the world studied in his past work with members of the skateboarding community. This collection of photos reveals layers of resemblance between his immediate family and those of the outside world, both wear their physical scars as things of pride, battle wounds.
