While in isolation, I have been attempting to entertain myself and my family through constant board games. Board games are a way of escapism, but they are also controlled and constrained fun. You are always working towards becoming the winner but there are always rules along the way. Above, I have created my own version of ‘Snakes & Ladders’, while being outside in my garden inspired by the natural world. In this version, the trees grow and become the ladders for the counters or characters to climb up and the waterfalls are the slippery snakes for the counters to fall down. In this version above, the formless blobs are used as disembodiments and juxtapositions from the ‘real’ trees and waterfalls. The blobs somewhat become imaginary unconditioned counters, altering our perspective of what is real.
