The Ludens Show 2018

Due to the never ending growth of machines and computers capabilities, automation will inevitably outperform humans. Therefore the conventional way of thinking about the human function as a ‘working entity’ is outdated.In this installation, an alternative purpose of humans is presented: Play. In its broadest form, ‘play’ is anything one could do without serving any utilitarian function. Referring to Johan Huizinga’s concept of Homo Ludens, the Ludens Show is a representation of humans new purpose.
