“Play recalls forgotten depths and summons them up to the light of day. By making them stay within the everyday, it encompasses art and many other things as well. It uses appearances and illusions which – for one marvelous moment – become more real than the real. And with play another reality is born, not a separate one, but one which is ‘lived’ in the everyday, alongside the functional. It may seem that we are regurgitating the old apology for the acte gratuit, but no. We are protesting against the loss of grace and gracefulness. Play is a lavish provider of presence and presences.”
Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life
