"I'm mostly interested in conepts of play as free activity definied by Huizinga and Callois and today's problems with these definitions. Also how play is becoming more and more commodified human activity, the concept of agon apears to be "ruling" play element, especially in the notion of Virno's Negation and Inovation and what Pasquinelli describe as Immaterial Civil War. In young animals, play is mostly preparation for survival, learning how to efficiently defend themselves or how to efficiently attack prey. Its interesting for example how game industry is counting on specifically this element / pure agon. Here is useful to realize concept of animal spirits that Virno and Pasqunelli are referring too, where they regard inovation and culture as the constant battle, (or Immaterial civil war) and prolongation of animal nature in human. In that sense culture is not something opposite to "animal spirit" but rather continuation or even amplification of animal nature in humans. Situationists for examply clearly located problem of competition aspect in play."
