During our childhood game allows the first contact with our immediate environment. The child gets to establish an interactive process with the surrounding by submitting trivial actions to arbitrary rules, creating repetitive motion sequences. The infant explores and experiments with the elements around him/her using this mechanism. The kid also acquires important skills during this process. Once assimilated, this know-how will later be helpful to build reality and wonder about it.
In later stages, the need to provide meaning to the environment will clash with the random essence of nature. It is in this stage of development/now that gestures such as delineating, grouping, balancing, classifying or representing, once on the basis of the game, lose their playfulness and become small actions of control to fight uncertainty.
This Sample Book of Minimal Actions is inspired by this process. We propose four games based on this same question: in a shared space, what place does certainty occupy?
