Room for play
In a dark time asks a vital question: Where do the children play? I find that this is one of the most important questions in modern society. If you read this article by Henry Jenkins, Complete Freedom of Movement, the question links directly into our culture of games which are soundless and physically restricted: video and computer games.

Today, children either break the law, or they escape inwards. Either way, our society has a problem. And the problem isn't created by the games we make to be able to control our children, but by the options we give them. The one thing we have forgotten, is to give them space.
