Mini-games, monsters and Mr Happy: A video essay on virtual and actual play
This video essay is a microethological study of the transduction of a virtual world (the PC game Age of Mythologies) into the actual world play of children with toys and water. The video is constructed from an audio recording and a sequence of still photographs of the play event. It traces the shaping of actual play by simulated worlds and their conventions, fictions and virtual physics.
