Venturing Into The Borderlands of Playfulness is an exploration of the importance of playing.

Yes, playfulness is an attitude of exploration. Yes, it is a simulation of a fight for survival. Yes, we need a playful attitude to learn without smarting under our own mistakes. Yes, playfulness can easily turn into labour, into an obsession, or into an addiction. The borderlands of playfulness are still covered in mist. But maybe some landmarks are visible now. Some guiding lights to lead us along the journey into the heart of playfulness.
