My practice explores the element of play that exists in our everyday lives, touching on its ability to prompt humour as well as providing a more serious value. My work engages with live action role-play as a means of providing an alibi for play, which enables participants to simulate an escape from their personal reality. I make soft sculpture props that respond to mass-produced household objects combined with ambiguous, anthropomorphic forms. By doing so, I render the objects completely impractical for their intended function. The props became central to the narratives that formed during the participatory larps that I have facilitated; these having been enacted through a series of workshops with children from Dunbar Primary School.
