Kick the flower, 2013


video 3'10"

 

On the presupposition that play is just play, we can follow its rules even if they are absurd or unreasonable ones.  I focused attention on the moment where play exert influence on the actual living through that, and explored the borderline between play and the facts of life. Then I tried to devise a play based on plactical rules of human realations.

This video is a doument of a play where a partner kept on kicking a bunch of flower asking too much or for impossible (e.g. Bring it within 3 second, Gather all petals right now, Forget all happenings during this game!), and her pertner also kept picking it up fulfilling her wishes.

 


花を蹴って, 2013

 

 私たちは遊びの際に、不条理なルールであっても従うことができるだろう。私はそのようにして遊びが遊びを超えて実生活に影響を与える瞬間に着目し、遊びと現実の境界を探った。そして現実的なルールに基づいた遊びの考案を試みた。

 これは、無茶な要求(三秒以内に蹴った花束を取ってこい、花びらを全て集めろ、今すぐこのゲームの記憶を忘れろ、など)に従う遊びの記録である。
