Come with us on a pilgrimage to a more playful lifestyle
A collaboration with Abner Preis
A series of installations at cyclist traffic lights around a busy roundabout in Utrecht, Netherlands. More and More I see traffic is biased around automobiles, resulting in longer waiting times for cyclists and pedestrians. This interventions provides a playful intermezzo while waiting; ‘time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time’.
The installations are based on the concept of ‘upcycling’, using only found material from the surrounding area. This way I aim to create a ripple effect questioning peoples ideas of where you play, and with what.
I will be giving a talk on ‘Playfulness in Public Space by Ludic Intervention’, check out the outline here http://w00t.dk/sylvan-steenhuis-nl/
edit: had a blast at w00t, the festival people were nice enough to put up the video’s of ALL the game talks! Thanks to INDGRB
