Session Title:

  • Fiction and Writing

Presentation Title:

  • A vous de jouer



  • Currently, Christiane Robbins is completing ‘(Death) A Vous de Jouer (death)’ your move, a revelatory project engaging the possibilities of narrative within an augmented environment and questions relating to chance and its relationship to the ubiquitous ‘gaming’ strategies inhabiting the W3 (ironically, one of the first computer games created was called Artificial Life by John Conway). Inherent to the gaming paradigms and technologies are the more absorbing and analytical dimensions of control, surveillance, tracking, voyeurism and simulated mechanisms of death that are also elemental to the W3 structure and audience participation.
