099/2011 what do bored students do?

I attended a French teachers’ seminar over the weekend, and we had workshops in classrooms in a middle school. One corner of the tables in one was rather interesting.

It looked a bit like a skin disease spreading over the smooth white surface. Obviously, one day somebody had started shaving off bits of the laminate to reveal the brown wood underneath, and like scratching on itchy rash, others couldn’t resist continuing. It’s probably decades of teen angst, favourite stars and TV programmes, heartaches and crushes, etched on the surface. Looking at the details, makes it a fascinating piece of collective art.
