A couple of Mondays per month, PlayGroundology screenshots a cyberspot that focuses on playgrounds, or play. I hope readers dive in and explore. Even if you’ve seen the selection before, take a moment and check to see what content has been added recently.
Think of this as a very slow stumble upon, an invitation to relish something new or to revisit an old friend. Some of the people and places may be household names in the world of play and playgrounds, others not so much. I hope all will pique your interest in what they have to offer and further your own possibilities for playfulness.
In the article linked to here, Eric Scragg speaks about the upturned roots of big trees following a hurricane on the Vancouver, BC coast when he was a child. That jumble from long ago was the start of his inspiration for fantastical play sculptures that redefine wood and whimsy.
Don’t take my word for it, visit Eric Scragg’s site and immerse yourself in a world where organic form is a distinctive signature piece. Thanks to @misterhoneybee who introduced me to Eric’s work. If I wasn’t so far from Whistler, BC, I’d be hightailing it there now.
Thanks Eric, you’re right – it is all an adventure.
