I.MAGIC.NATION ::: A nostalgic journey through childhood in the 70’s…
We grew up in a world where the power of imagination and magical thought filled our minds and our televisions. The 70′s were a period of original, brilliant educational programming. The airwaves on Saturday mornings were full of brightly bizarre creations that were meant to ready us for the world. Songs, colors and strange characters taught us everything from basic counting to how a bill becomes a law. These lessons helped us to develop our own special worlds. Our nostalgic brains have translated our memories of what we took in as kids and how it has affected us as adults.
