Research

On this page, I’ll keep you up-to-date with my research.

My project revolves around video gaming in everyday lives, taking a phenomenological approach. I’ll link all relevant posts right here.

A History of Immersive Video Game Technologies

Providing the historical contect of immersive technologies for my thesis. Working through the arcades to our living rooms today, this chapter will prove a relatively brief, chronological account.

The Player-Conduit and Immersion Phenomenon

To be confirmed.

The Geography of a Virtual World and the Constitution of Space.

To be confirmed.

VR and the Pursuit of True Immersion

To be confirmed.

The Phenomenology of Play

To demonstrate a phenomenological analysis of the experience of playing a video game. This will take into account temporal, spatial and self-awareness as well as embodied action, linguistic activity and everyday activity in our surrounding world.

This is very much a work in progress, as all theses are. I look forward to seeing where my research takes me.
