play on Does "play on" in the following context mean more "playing with" or "using" or both? Context: The work for Heathrow Express combined words and images in a way that has been described as ‘oddly ambiguous or cleverly allusive’. In essence, the disintegration/reintegration of image and the indeterminate play on Warhol’s ‘famous for 15 minutes’ in relation to the time of the train journey and the range of passengers that take it create an ambience rather than delivering a straightforward message and again call for a far more intuitive response from the viewer than in conventional advertising.
