Everyday Play: A Campaign against Boredom.

Everyday Play is fabulous! CORNELIA PARKER

It’s better to dance than to march through life.’ YOKO ONO

Are you stuck in the rut of everyday life? Bored by the routine of daily existence? Have you lost your sense of fun in the mundane? 

‘Life must be believed as play,’ said Plato, and this book will help you rediscover the wonder in the weekly grind, and the extraordinary in the ordinary. Throughout history, philosophers, artists and writers have found liberation in taking play seriously. 

EVERYDAY PLAY shows you how you can use creativity, games and the imagination 
to transform your life.
  • learn how to be someone else for a day
  • explore how to draw a poem, paint a book and re-orientate your library
  • enjoy writers using constraints or languages they don’t understand
  • play the edible book game or become a living sculpture
  • become a writer and play word games to find new ways of saying what you mean

 EVERYDAY PLAY is the essential compendium of artists’ games, philosophers’ enquiries and manifestos against the banal. They will challenge our perceptions of work, rest and play, with contributions from, amongst others, Louise Bourgeois, Jeremy Deller, Luis Buñuel, R. B. Kitaj and Lydia Davis.
