Play of Life

In my project Play of Life, I explore playfulness with adults. To what extent do we feel called to connect with it? I invite different people in front of my camera and let them make their own fort.

What emerges in this process?
By taking building a fort as the starting point, there is a stable element of research present in the project. While building a fort, the process reveals the inner world and a piece of identity of the people I follow.

As an artist I am in a facilitating role, there is space to be seen what emerges during this process of play. Therefore, it is no longer about building the forts, but what this process of play reveals. I observe friction, connection, safety, desires, identities, political perspectives, playful discovery, humor, and similarities and contrasts among the participants. Our humanness connects.
