PLAY connects the general public with creative processes in which artists “play”, as a means to instant composition and as generative process for final composition.

PLAY highlights random sparks, patterns and potentials activated when players listen and practice with immediacy – allowing the new connection to guide creation of time based art.

We play to work and work to play.

Always Becoming

Time-based art can provide a more realistic experience of the ephemeral nature of time. The fact is we never arrive into now. Our experience of the present is perpetual state of becoming. This video ALWAYS BECOMING is a celebration of this potential to become. It’s a dance with and about forces of affect, a ritual experience that also relays something more about immanence or an immanent body experiencing time and space in a fullness that diminishes the compulsion to escape into the transcendent.

HOP HOPE is part ofWe Just Stopped Pretending, a series of videos shot outdoors in the commons of various international cities that contrast everyday reality with heightened presence and phenomena. The interdisciplinary project brings attention to potentiality of community space by blurring social boundaries in creative use of the commons. Elements of everyday landscape are re contextualized as players of the fantastical. We Just Stopped Pretending explores where the imagination, collective potentials and creative engagement have a place alongside regular use of “the commons”.
