Maybe it’s best to define “ludic” first.
Why is this important to define ludic? It’s the perfect word to represent the creative goals of this site. Previously, I hosted all of my creative work at Mierendorf Media (which now directs here). I started Mierendorf Media, which was previously Michael R. Mierendorf Photography (hence the mrmfoto.com domain), as a home for my creative work. Writing, photography, reposting published work from Cultural Transmogrifier. Over the course of time, Mierendorf Media extended into more creative projects. A dedicated Project section was setup and included projects called Becoming A Dad, HOSTI, WordPress development and teaching, and more.
While the moniker Mierendorf Media was appropriate, it was all work done personally, and I wanted to have a site that could be open to collaboration. Some of the projects I have in mind are open to collaboration and I thought a fun, non-personal name fit the bill.
Additionally, ludic is a great word. What better way to describe a series of unrelated projects than spontaneous and undirected playfulness? I don’t want to limit the growth of this site. An organic evolution of content works like a charm under Ludic Works.
So while most content will be written by me, the randomness and playfulness of Lucid Works is open to all! Hope you enjoy it.
