Ambient Play

El-Palauet-RMIT-Europe-HQ-BarcelonaRos was at an EU COST Workshop in June, held at the Australian University RMIT’s sumptuous Barcelona headquarters (see image). The symposium sought to address the new types of labour, creativity and play emerging around mobile media and games. Drawing upon empirically grounded and theoretically informed analyses of phenomena such as Let’s Play (shared videos of people playing games) and mobile lifestyle apps (as part of the quantified self), the symposium engaged with, and debated, the role of existing, remediated and new forms of play and labour within everyday life. Ros presented her new work on appearance apps and the quantified self.
