A play area is a wild area. A voracious imagination, rich in excess is channeled into a physical and corporal blast. What is “the playground”? It is the place wherein the “corporal blast” mentioned above, occurs. In the absence of physicality this place can be everywhere, especially there where the body cannot.
Here is the attempt to approach that place in between; where body and joy in unison, can be weightless, ageless, unrestrained . Neither high up nor down to the ground, needless for legs to walk, or rules on how to play, the body will be free to improvise its own movement on an unstable environment.
Consider how does it feel playing in the urban environment of Kypseli; in surroundings, gray and cemented? The only medium to evolve the game is via imagination. In this game, the theme springs-forth from places where no one has ever entered, or ever came out. The eye arrested by a stray cat jumping around can make the flats look like dollhouses. The lines become distinct and this is - probably the only way to describe what you see; regardless that a straight line has never been drawn by our own hands.
Thus, out of the transparent tube were woven carpets and mattresses, corridors and bridges, swings and patches; so that the body can be found floating in pendulous surfaces, searching for its own limits and its forlorn wildness. The PLAY [on] GROUND is surfaces of transparent PVC knitted; surfaces which are weaved in a way that every point, becomes a touching-point, a handle to grip, a surface to drop on, to swing from, or just a place to rest. A structure inspired by and destined for an urban game. It can accommodate from kids to adults, regardless of weight. The aim of the construction is, according to the dimensions of the urban space provided, to be multiplied, shape-shifted and redesigned inasmuch as to cover the needs of the available space above the ground.
