Have you wondered why it's so loud when you chomp down on an apple in a quiet space only to find out that it is the vibrations of sound through your bones? Oh my!
Playtime in the Clayground draws on the fascination of these bodily interactions and evolves into a rather curious playscape. Clay stands as the gravitational force amidst my negotiations of space and place, cohesively shaping an interdisciplinary environment wherein material evolves into vessels for active play. Mabel Tan invites you as participants and audience to create new visceral exchanges between your bodies and materials during your time in Playtime in the Clayground.
