How To Win At Photography

Join us online on 7th October at 15.00 for our next research event at which we will hear Marco de Mutiis present his in-progress PhD project How To Win At Photography. We have also invited Seth Giddings (Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton) to join us as discussant.

Marco’s presentation will introduce his research project on the relationship between games and images. The project starts from an analysis of the phenomenon of in-game photography, attempting to define game-image relations, and the process of capturing images within game environments as a specific form of image production. He will introduce concepts borrowed from game and play studies in order to rethink the role of computational and networked images. His interest is in seeing how different form of image-play have larger effect on visual culture and are deeply embedded within larger economic, cultural and social contexts and media ecologies.
