This issue of Sprout explores play.
When one plays, one enacts something or someone. Taking on a role, (temporarily?) woven in with all other presentations of the self, on all different stages, with all different props, of the everyday. Even if the scene was brief or in-jest, it can be preserved and consulted as an oracle. Playing is a transaction with oneself or with others, established in other realities. It’s collaborative conception, creation and learning. Did you know some schools use LARPing as an educational method?
For issue 6 of Sprout we asked some people what ‘play’ means to them. We thank them for putting their thoughts to paper.
