Example text

A question arises here: what activity constitutes play? Hans asks this question and agrees with Gadamer that it can be said ‘[p]lay fulfills its purpose only if the player loses himself in play’ (Gadamer, 1989: 102). Play focuses on activity, not objects (Hans, 1981). Gadamer writes that the players become so engrossed in their action that what is seen is the ‘primacy of play over the consciousness of the player’ (Gadamer, 1989: 104). In fact the play only exists during the activity of being played: The players are not the subjects of the play; instead play merely reaches presentation through the players…all playing is a being-played.

Harvard University Press. 25 CHAPTER 2 PLAY, QUICKNESS AND FESTINA LENTE Play is far from being only a child’s game. James Hans believes that play is central to living, and he writes of inorganic, organic, and human play. Inorganic and organic objects have a part to play in the world, even if it is a small part. Even a rock plays, although it may wait centuries to become actively involved.

Everything in this sketch is secondary to the large dark parallelogram of the library extension. The dramatic view shows distinctly the presence of the building on the waterfront in Copenhagen. The background and foreground are lighter and less defined. The buildings in the distance are rendered with quick vague lines. The pedestrians in the foreground are brief profiles. Schmidt emphasizes the bold slice through the building contrasting its lighter value and adding to its transparency. Simplifying the dark shape into a bold form anticipates the final construction but also acts conceptually to identify the building’s stark shape – thus the ‘Black Diamond’.
