The Platonic Game of Life, 2017
A4 180 gr/m² laser-cut and engraved papers
Physical aspects of this project consist of:
– cover: platform to setup
– 3 diverse reflective foils
– 3 different sizes of the five platonic solids
– instruction page
All laser cut or engraved

This A4 book is a puzzle aimed to create a three-dimensional interpretation of a life. Minimizing the possibilities for manipulation, the puzzle’s design is an attempt to give as little written
instruction possible while still embodying very specific theories. The instructions are presented in symbols because they are not reliant on any given written language. The mirror foils are connected to Plato’s Tripartite Theory of Soul and each of the unfolded platonic solids represent the external factors of each player’s life.
Participating in this project, the player is called forth to interpret, unfold, and bring together
his/her own Platonic Life Plan.
