The Art of Play at CCP
Centre for Contemporary Photography
404 George Street
Fitzroy, Vic 3065
From cats on lounges playing haptic (touch) smartphones to old, disused console devices adorning bedrooms, playful media saturate our everyday lives. While some of the objects radiate the honeymoon aura of new media (aka the romance of a new “app”), many objects are old friends that inhabit our rooms and memories. These playful objects move in and out of the background of our everyday, reminding us play is integral to wellbeing, being creative and resilient.
