Everyday Play: A Campaign Against Boredom

Product Description

By Julian Rothenstein

“Life must be lived as play,” said Plato, and this book will help you rediscover the wonder in the weekly grind, and the extraordinary in the ordinary. Throughout history, philosophers, artists and writers have found liberation in taking play seriously. Everyday Play shows you how you can use creativity, games and the imagination to transform your life.

Learn how to be someone else for a day; explore how to draw a poem, paint a book and reorient your library; enjoy writers using constraints or languages they don’t understand; play the Edible Book Game or become a living sculpture; become a writer and play word games to find new ways of saying what you mean. Everyday Play is the essential compendium of artists’ games, philosophers' inquiries and manifestos against the banal.
