The Art of Failure is what Jesper Juul calls Video games, an artform that creates an aesthetic out of failure. In this video, we examine his work, as well as how play has always been associated with hardship and learning, despite being governed by the magic circle of play. The video also surveys many others theorists of failure, from philosophy, psychology and game design, and how video games have incorporated failure into their design.
