Unearthing Play in the Everyday

Captain Ludicrous’ LudiCo Worldwide Recruitment Programme continues apace.

On Saturday 17th September, his ludic locomotive pulled into Prague and aboard leapt a gaggle of boisterous young brigands.  All (bar one) were duly inducted into LudiCo, dispensing with their quotidian identities, imaginatively transforming themselves, and breathing life into their freshly-created totems that would help them on their Quest.  Thus, they were equipped to seek out the ludic affordances that lie dormant in the environs of Studio Alta.

Journeying in pairs, here is what they found.

Make way and brace yourselves for the entrance of:

FiFi & Phaida

Ever wondered what goes on inside David Attenborough’s head?

 

Now you can find out!  Join me as we clamber inside the cranium of a natural naturalist national treasure and journey through his incredible Imaginarium whilst reimagining our own surroundings.

 

N.B.  Please download this podcast onto a mobile device and listen to it whilst wandering – it’s the only way 🙂

(If you’re on my website and can’t see the “Download Audio” button, click on the title of the post and it will appear beneath the player)

 

Let’s do this.  Put on a pair of comfy shoes, open the door, open your mind, and take the third step on the path to playfulness (steps 1 & 2 also available).

(I know it sounds obvious, but do please take this Wandercast for a wander; it only really works if you interact with it on foot.

And please, please, please let me know how it goes by filling in the feedback!)

Be on the lookout for detail and remember:

You are the architect of your own playfulness!

This podcast makes extensive use of a common capacity to create imagery ‘in your mind’s eye’. However, not everyone has this capacity.  If you find it difficult to imagine things visually, you might want to click here for more information.

FuFu is Missing!

When a slightly indeterminate cat goes missing in the Abbey Orchard, only the joined forces of a gaggle of inpromptu heroes can (potentially) save the day.

What colour is FuFu?

And how big?

Is FuFu a she or a he?

Most crucially of all: will FuFu be found?

Watch the video to answer all these questions and more!

On Tuesday 24th of May, Captain Ludicrous unleashed his unique brand of ludicrousness on a hearty band of partially-suspecting PhD students at the University of Kent.

All were inducted into LudiCo and assumed their new identities before commencing an intense round of playfulness training.

See some of the things they got up to.
