In particular, the issue seeks to counter the notion that our experience of screens (and digital media more generally), is largely “virtual” and disembodied — or at most exclusively audiovisual. From location aware gaming (using GPS) to casual games accessed on the mobile phone, the arena of mobile gaming is becoming increasingly widespread in contemporary culture, dynamically redefining perceptions of mobility, place, play and embodiment.

The video game as a medium and a style of life has reached its middle age along with the first generation of people who grew up playing them. The non-linear, interactive, processor based narratives, which at first mimicked Hollywood and struggled to convey their simple content with 8-bit processors, gradually became the largest entertainment industry in the history of electronic media.

Reblogged Worldview

wvall.jpg[Worldview is an urban installation for tourists that enables them to record their experience with both an instant-print postcard and a video clip and look through realtime windows into public spaces in other cities.] Fitting in with the surveillance theme in the last few posts but also some older work discussed here (World Bench, Miroir Aux Silhouettes, Intimate Transactions and the work of Paul Sermon), Worldview (by Haque Design) allows users to engage with both the spaces around them, subsequent users to the installation and users interacting with a similar installation elsewhere.
