Culture'Playtime' Launch

‘Playtime’ Launch

Childhood memories are like gold. When those memories involve huge inflatables and humans dressed as lions, it’s hard to let them go.  When we first met Will Lakeman 10 years ago, he somehow looked older than he does now. Returning to his youth, both physically and spiritually, Will has melded cutting-edge AI with nostalgic memories and reimagined his childhood haunt in an exhibition of imagery that’s both familiar and obscure. Guests at the Open View were treated not only to Will in his teenage self’s attire, but also trappings of the 80s with Mr Freeze Ice Pops and even a guest appearance by Humfrey the Lion. The exhibition runs until the 2nd July. Be sure to head down and check it out, on your Bauer skates or BMX to really get in the zone.
