Remember learning your multiplication tables? We often repeat things several times before they commit to our memory. As a special education teacher for over 30 years, Steven Dobbin has established repetition and symbols as a way of survival for his students. This philosophy, repetition is the “Mother of all Learning,” has informed Dobbin’s aesthetic. Use of the same subject in various mediums—the grids of wood transfers, the glass jars and tins containing symbols, and finally the blinking neon sign—all become a reflection of our memory, and his need for order and predictability.
