Play / Cognition (بازی / تمرین) at Solo Show, Online

How can we find focus through collective amusement / how can we amuse each other through a collective focus?

Play / Cognition (بازی / تمرین) is a multifaceted and ever evolving project designed with the intention to connect with others near and far, engage in a mutual form of production, and keep entertained through collective action. This selection of images is an overview of the first six phases of this project. Communicating mostly through emails, 10 participants were tasked with, and /or asked to assign tasks to, with no end goal or final product in sight. Participants encouraged each other to think outside the box. New forms of task based communication developed as the project evolved challenging the confines of virtual performative making and connection. These tasks were done in our spare time, without pressure and as a form of meditation.
