Play and games
I'm very much interested in what happens when people play. For kids, it is no big deal. To get grownups in a playful and experimental mood, this is much harder. Especially when they are not expecting the invitation. Games are my stepping-stones - ready-mades, visual devices that can be recognised at a glance. Games project an instant expectation, they pre-suppose a social pattern. It is this expectation that I play with.
I deconstruct games, then reconstruct them, making them different in a subtle way. In order to make perception and expected perception of my players be at odds: to create a situation where one has to re-navigate reality.
More about my games at the blog I write about my experimental games. Check experiment no 005 for an indoor game, and experiment no 007 for a number of experiments in public space. The game-cum-essay I wrote about 'play and games as artistic practice' can be played at www.everdienbreken.org.
