potential space

A serious look at child's play

by Nancy Richards Farese

Potential Space

A collection of 13 photographs from the series represents a visual index of play from around the world in a stunning exploration of the human relationship to play, captured through the lenses of culture, tradition and economics.

Currently on display in MuseumLab’s Grable Gallery.

In the constant motion between our inner and outer worlds, we inhabit what the psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott called our ‘potential space’ where creativity and resilience are born, and sustained. – Nancy Farese
