  • Epigraph:

    Und hast die Welt gemacht. Und sie ist groB

    und wie ein Wort, das noch im Schweigen reift.

    Und wie dein Wille ihren Sinn gegreift,

    lassen sie deine Augen zartlich los…

    And you have made a world. And it is grand

    and like a word that may in silence grow.

    And as your will its mind shall understand,

    your eyes, with slow caress, shall let it go...

    (Rilke, ‘Eingang’)

    'Play evades and escapes our attempts to define and delimit. It has variously been positioned as benign, crucial, intractable, frivolous, developmental, wasteful and subversive. While it may occur ‘between the cracks of ordinary life’ (Henricks 2006: 1) and be denoted by a ‘feeling of Otherwise’ (Shields 2015: 300), it is the very everydayness of playful engagement that captures our attention in this issue of Axon. As the papers and works brought together here attest, it is hard to imagine creativity without play. Play infiltrates and enlivens creative practice research. It allows us to think and to be otherwise in the academy.' (From introduction)
