I can only add 6 images...if you look at the small "walk this path" to the right, you can see several "ghost images" that don't seem to want to upload...so there you go! I've been trying for several days, and frankly, I'm done. This is as good as it's going to get.

I am fascinated by playgrounds. That city planners would specifically alot space for play amuses me. Children play everywhere, most often in areas they shouldn't-with sticks, rocks, and piles of dirt. In mud puddles and dirty ditches...and I have watched time and again as playgrounds sit empty while every child at the park climbs a nearby tree. But still, playgrounds are beautiful in their hopefulness. Sitting there, all colorful and primed for action. It's hard not to root for them.

I've been thinking about playgrounds as well, this project really made me look at "ordinary" spaces and think about their "ordinariness" in a different way. I want to make extraordinary ordinary environments... This also made me wonder what Dubai's playgrounds are like... for some reason I imagine Dubai not having any, like there just aren't any children there, like Las Vegas. A place that shouldn't be, but is.

I wonder about Dubai's playgrounds too....like that Arcade fire song about a city with no children in it. Although maybe it's just that playing outdoors in Dubai might be hazardous for tender young skin. Sizzle, sizzle.

I like how, once you click on the third photo, the blue from the slide seeps through the image. It's like a strange rearrangement of playground apparatus.

I like the use of the word "apparatus" in relation to the playground.
