"Everyday Play" edited by Julian Rothenstein
“Everyday Play will jiggle your syntax and bio-energize your astral enzymes. It reads like the misbehaving son of ‘Redstone.’” –Ed Ruscha
Restore play to the everyday with games and life tips from artists, writers and thinkers from Louise Bourgeois and Hunter S. Thompson to Lydia Davis and Karl Lagerfeld
Rediscover the wonder in the weekly grind, and the extraordinary in the ordinary: Everyday Play shows you how to use creativity, games and the imagination to transform your life. Be someone else for a day; learn how to draw a poem, paint a book or become a living sculpture; play word games to find new ways of saying what you mean.
"Everyday Play" is an essential compendium of artists’ games, philosophers' inquiries and manifestos against the banal, with contributions from, among others, Luis Buñuel, Lewis Carroll, Robert Creeley, Adam Dant, Lydia Davis, Jeremy Deller, Dashiell Hammett, Will Hobson, Nina Katchadourian, Andrei Monastyrski, Francis Ponge, Erik Satie and Mark Wahlberg.
