There is three kind of men. Homo Sapiens, the man who knows. Homo Faber, the man who creates. Homo Ludens, the man who plays.
Play is a function of the living. It presents to us like an intermezzo, an interlude of our daily life.
Play is a ritual that has a consecrated spot, the playground, the magic circle. Inside this playground an absolute and peculiar order reigns. Into an imperfect world and the confusion of life, it brings a temporary, limited perfection
As makers, we have the power to transform material into ideas. Through this process in which we experiment tension and confusion, we can achieve pleasure. We play with the reality mixing experiences from the inner world with the outside world. In this blend is where it lays our inspiration.
Reversal and inversion, exaggeration, paradox, playing with boundaries, playing with infinity, playing with space and playing with time. This is what human does. Humans are artists only when they are at play or perhaps they are ideally humans only when they are at play.
