CASE: Objects are Blocking Access at Work

🔥NEW Hello, I am struggling to find the principle behind a particular situation.
So, here are the facts:
1. One day I arrive at work and go to see the boss. He is in his room and has some objects left on the floor (e.g., candies). So I can't enter without picking up the candies and putting them somewhere to avoid to step on them. But then the boss said: "Stop don't touch this, I am doing an experiment. I have to see who notices this on the floor". What's this? Why? And what does it mean?
2. Another day I arrive at the workplace. The boss was around. The path to my workplace is blocked by a recycle bin which was put in the middle of the path without any apparent reason. It had never been there. I asked why the bin is there? No answer. I remove it.
So, these are the two situations.
I did a bit of research and it could be it is related to some HR principle. But I couldn't find something clear. Can someone help me to identify what is behind all of this?
Thanks beforehand for any hints!
