Writer and artist Stephanie Barber explores the conceptual construct of art production as play. Barber has created a poetic, conceptual and philosophical body of work in a variety of media. Many of her videos are concerned with the content, musicality and experiential qualities of language. They ferry viewers through philosophical inquiry with the unexpected oars of play, emotionalism, story and humor. Working with some of the ideas approached in her six-week project jhana and the rats of james olds, she produced a film each day for 31 days. Free.
