PLAY ART / Escaping the maplands –

Last week, I experienced Frank Koolen’s playful universe through the exhibition “Play Hard” at Roskilde museum of contemporary Art.
I am a big fan of participatory Art and I played along with enthusiasm.
With the video installation “Escaping the maplands” (a parody of Google Streetview) I took part in the narratives appearing on the screen by experimenting with shadows. That was fun.

Songkran

New Year’s celebrations in Thailand take place from the 13th to the 15th of April. The Songkran festival I experienced in Bangkok wasn’t exactly spiritual and religious (the water is originally meant as a symbol of washing all of the bad away and the use of chalk refers to the way blessings are marked by monks), but it was a lot of fun. Get yourself a water-gun and go play with everyone but be ready to be soaked and covered with chalk.
