the trait of acting unpredictably 
an unusual, odd, unexpected, or fanciful idea
a strange but playful and funny quality

amuse oneself by engaging in imaginative pretense
the space in or through which a system can or does move
a particular action, or the quality of the action
a deliberate coordinated movement 
the action or manner of engaging in

a strange attitude or habit
something strange that happens for reasons that you do not know or understand
peculiarity, oddity, eccentricity
a peculiarity of behavior; an idiosyncrasy

cleverly amusing in tone
with ironic or flippant intent
characterized by irony or whimsical exaggeration

The work included in Whimsy: Play, Quirk and a Tongue-in-Cheek Aesthetic, shares a like-minded sensibility in that the work seems to exist first and foremost to explore or reference the nature of play or playfulness, of quirk and a quirkiness; that refers either directly to the work itself or makes reference to events and ideas outside the work.
