This is a short 3-day class/workshop/intervention where my role was to introduce play and playful strategies as methods for artistic creation. The larger context was a 3-month transdisciplinary collaborations with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd years students and several ateliers of the École supérieure d'art d'Aix-en-Provence to explore the idea of « chaînes opératoires ».

We used playing cards as a starter method, inspired by the Crash Cards methodology developped for ENIAROF, and then worked from there to develop our own cards and/or methdologies, depending on the project. You can see the actual cards drawn over at the Crash Cards interface.

Projects were defined by the cards and ranged from the creation of a conference, a play, a walk, a game (using post-its), a drawing (using Piecharts as a methodology), an installation, a story.
