Dom Heffer presents ‘Play, Plato, Play dough’

KAG studio holder Dom Heffer presents ‘Play, Plato, Play dough’, at the Seventeenth Annual Convention of the Media Ecology Association “Interfaces of Play and Game”, at the University of Bologna – Italy

The University of Bologna, Italy, brings the Media Ecology Association to Europe for the first time and host the 17th Annual Convention in Bologna on June 23-26, 2016. Considered the oldest university in the Western world, the University of Bologna provides a welcoming setting, inviting scholars, professionals, and interested people to attend from different fields, as well as from different nations.

Playing with Johan Huizinga’s idea that game and play are older than culture, we seek to recall the multifaceted symbolic dimensions embedded by these very terms: at its roots, the word game means participation, communion, and people together; similarly, the word play introduces the ideas of cultivating, taking care of, and performing.
