Traditional is somewhat “old fashioned” and can appear “time-honored”, as if it were created many years ago. Still life drawings, mature landscapes, Victorian children are all good examples. Surveys the relationship between music and technology from the Paleolithic Age to the present. Examines the origins and impact of diverse musical instruments, with attention to connections between musical and technological developments; the reasons instruments are accepted, modified, or abandoned; and debates about the effects of new technologies on music. Considers such forces as standardization, institutionalization, and commodification, as well as experimentation, hacker, and DIY cultures.

When children enter foster care they are given a general test called the “Parents’ Evaluation of Developmental Status” (PEDS). Its purpose is to give a brief overview of their mental state and developmental state(, 2010). The test is intended to be filled out by the caregiver, but in most cases the primary caregiver is no longer available. Children coming from abusive situations will likely show signs of emotional and developmental delays. In some cases, due to malnourishment, children are physically stunted and will be found in earlier stages of development physically.

Today his work can be seen hanging in some of the most pretigious museums and galleries, including both theTate Modern, and the British Museum, in London.
