In this moment it became clear that my fascination with Rituals was coming from my experiences as a child in the Kingdoms I grew up in. Within the Magic Circle, my fascinations found their shared backbone.
What also became clear is that as opposed to most Rituals – which are reproduced almost mechanically each time, not allowing any change to interfere – I was interested in a Magic Circle that is less strict, open-ended. A Magic Circle that poses a structure different from the everyday, while allowing changes to take place within itself. This was the difference between most Rituals I have encountered and my background as a role-player. The act of playing is generally based on chance and the emergence of unforeseen and unexpected situations, making in somewhat opposed to the rigid repetition of Ritual practices.The tension between these two forces thus became the heart of my creative practice.
Because of this, I wanted to find a name that represents my practice both as an independent entity and as a continuation of the Pipecland lineage. This is when Transformation Gameswere born.
