I am interested in ascertaining a sense of my own reality through repetitive acts of play – adopting different personas, exploring fantastical spaces and make-believe in storytelling. According to Henry Lefebvre, play is ‘transfunctional’; it goes beyond functionality – it has many uses and at the same time it is not useful at all. Play is a catalyst; it facilitates the breakdown of things into simpler forms, engendering an assessment and evaluation of one’s experience or situation. It becomes a way of metabolizing reality or our experience of it.
