The early days when digital games were new, harmless and niche are long gone. Today’s games can simulate battlefields, predict disaster, and crash markets. We are faced with a diversity of play and the ubiquity of games, making them not only a popular medium, but the leading medium of contemporary society. Based on the keynote lectures held at DiGRA2015, Diversity of Play provides a critical view on the current state of digital games from theoretical, artistic, and practical perspectives. With an interview with Karen Palmer and essays by Astrid Ensslin, Mathias Fuchs, Tanya Krzywinska, and Markus Rautzenberg, Diversity of Play explores the uncanny in games, ...

ECCOS is a modification of the soundtrack from an Ecco the Dolphin gameplay video found on Youtube. Wilson contextualizes ECCOS as furniture music: not a centerpiece, but a backdrop for thought and other activities. The project utilizes an input output system, in which he employs the simple “change speed” and “echo” effects in Final Cut Pro and pushes them to their maximum values. Wilson has diagrammed the process, relating it to kindred experiments like Brian Eno’s Discreet Music. In that spirit, ECCOS seeks–and finds–a limit within the music itself.

Everything I Shoot Is Art is a collection of essays and interviews written by Swedish art critic and researcher Mathias Jansson along the last few years, and first published on various online magazines and journals. Their main, though not unique, concern are the various possible connection lines that can be drawn between what we usually call “games” and what we usually call “art”, in the constant effort to help finding a broader, more comprehensive definition for the latter. Included are interviews with artists and indie game designers, from Rafael Rozendaal to Pippin Barr.

Originally published in 2008, this book documents the life and work of Gazira Babeli, the avatar artist active in Second Life between 2006 and 2010. In about 4 years, Gazira Babeli has created a vast body of works which address the world she lives in, and which have lent her such a solid, recognizable image that she has become a household name in Second Life. She acts like a virus, unleashing earthquakes, tornados and storms of images, deforming the bodies of other residents and constructing metaphorical machines; a capricious deity, she herself is a work of art, a “constructed identity” ...

In My Computer, by Miltos Manetas, is a collection of essays, interviews, short tales, parables, e-mails and drafts by its author. Written between 1997 and 2011, some of these texts are widely known, many others are unpublished, and just came out of his computer. All of them contribute to portray a personality who had a strong influence on younger generations of artists, thanks to his impressive body of work—including paintings, videos, installations, prints, performances and, last but not least, websites—but also to his writings. Manetas’ book is the first of a series of artists’ writings: “notebooks” sharing the same title ...

In Your Computer, by Domenico Quaranta, is a collection of texts written by Domenico Quaranta between 2005 and 2010 for exhibition catalogues, printed magazines and online reviews: a pocket version of what the author would save from the universal flood, in a world without computers. It documents most of the fields of research he has focused on critically: from Net Art to Software Art and videogames, from biotechnologies to the debate around curating and the positioning of New Media Art in the contemporary landscape, and back to Net Art again. This itinerary is traced through a selection of essays, monographic ...

In the 1971 experimental landscape film, La Région Centrale, atop a remote mountain in North Quebec, artist Michael Snow shot his footage with a camera attached to a robotic arm programmed to never rotate the same way twice. The result of the camera’s programatic movement oscillates between moments of representation and abstraction, overwhelming the viewer’s everyday sense of landscape with a cosmic and non-human perspective of space and time. La Région Decentralized is an infinite, self-playing video game remix of Snow’s seminal film by new media artist Rick Silva. In this piece, Silva digitally recreates the setting of the original film within a ...

Linkonia was a role-playing game and nation simulation conducted over Instagram from 2018 to 2019. The game featured dozens of part-time participants and incorporated the democratic inputs of hundreds of followers by allowing them to vote via Instagram stories. To my knowledge, this is the most extensive world building exercise and political exploration of its kind. Upon conclusion, the story was archived in a series of publicly available Google docs which are reproduced here. The game was primarily organized by Lincoln, then aged 16-17, who served as the Game Master and historian. He is the author of this text.
