“Still, Life" is a series of photographs of post-war playgrounds, built by Aldo Van Eyck. The series aims to bring to light their seemingly neglected existence as places, in contrast to the documentation of their social history. It also focuses on their overlooked, sculptural qualities - of urban character and open function, which intend to stimulate imaginative play. The playgrounds also incorporate the beneficial elements of risky play. The photographs are placed in hand distressed steel stanchion frames, putting them in the context of the contemporary and ever-changing city, filled with “non-places” - eliciting reflections upon the urban landscape.
