During our research on Gipsy camps in Rome we learned a lot.
From and within the locally enclosed nomadic cultures of Trastevere. How to play, with what and mostly how little more than full attention it takes to bring playful happiness.
Using the flexibility as part of a social design.
We spent a lot of time on location, showed the children our tricks and vice versa. Every time we came with a new toy which was received with full energetic appreciation.
First tryouts with the locally harvested material. How to make a rocking horse from almost nothing.
It felt like no one has time for the children to inspire and play together. We did our go and experimented with local waste materials, mostly tires.
