PLAY WORKSHOP | 2012 & 2013
Play can change behavior for the better. It can bring the extraordinary out of the everyday and we can gain new perspectives from the world around us. Play can help us think in a different way, and as designers, come to better creative solutions.
I was invited to give a workshop on Play at the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH) in the Autumn of 2012, and at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (Khio) in the Autumn of 2013. In this workshop, I facilitate situations and materials in which teams of students are encouraged to create a game or a playful situation using tools like paper props, cardboard, thread etc., and to work around constraints for each particular team. In this workshop, participants explore new ways of thinking, collaborating and allowing play into their practice.
