Playing FieldFebruary 5 2020 – December 24 2020
Playing Field is a table football machine with a twist. Upon first glance an ordinary foosball table, upon closer inspection a series of 22 interchangeable, playable sculptures.
The first set of players to grace Playing Field explore and celebrates the history of creativity in the city through the intertwining narratives of Sheffield’s Art School and football.
Playing Field is a social artwork, aiming to stimulate memorialisation, creativity and discussion through research, making and play. As such the process - from research to completion and beyond - has been collaborative, involving over 60 people. This event is to launch the piece, exhibit the research and process, and to celebrate the efforts of all involved.
Playing Field is a concept by Jamie Titterton.
