Group Play, 2017

Group play #1[They have always a single point in common, Be an engine, A tiger with its baby and goats, Copy of mimic] 15 Min, Group play #2 [Koko-Kohl, Long width of a river] 8 Min


During my stay in Palai, Rajisthan, India, I visited two comprehensive elementary and junior high schools to research children’s play. Through that, although I got to know an Indian education philosophy, on the other hand, I realized how difficult the philosophy was actually achieved. That represented, for instance, in a play where children mimic and enjoy diversity of their expression, teachers guided them in performing a stereotyoed behavior before that, or in another play where they form a group in accordance with call of numbers, they looked like engaging in leaving someone out of the group. Therefore, when I turned my eyes to the inconsistency of education, those situations was considered to seem ironical to adults.

Thus I focused on the two sides of education, and reconstructed their playings to emphasize another meaning of play for the position of veiwing them by altering original rules and adding new ones.
