Imaginary play

Interesting section in the ‘Museum of Childhood’ about imaginary play. As a child, obsessions with dressing up, role playing. The use of one object: a mask allows for the child to imagine everything else. As a child you are making your own miniature world. This seems to have a connection with the project. I couldn’t help but think that making this set is just an excuse to re-live those moments during childhood- building my miniature world.

‘Every child at play behaves like a creative writer, by creating a world of his own or… by imposing a new and more pleasing order on the things that make up his world’. Sigmund Freud
