The PLAY Project is a community-based art project that Dutch designer Ka-Lai Chan is a part of in which artists and temporary inhabitants do various installations and projects. Chan took over a living room / gallery and covered everything with tape, and I do mean everything.

The furniture and objects that are on or pushed up against the wall look as if they are pushing through or growing out of the wall. It’s surreal looking, right?

From my understanding, the PLAY Project is part of a bigger art project where buildings in Utrecht that are set to be demolished are temporarily handed over to artists to do with what they like. It’s all about building a bigger and more close-knit artistic community.
