Current Project

The goal of my research is to realize a project that results in a work that (hopefully) studies, and illustrates the relationship between material and player. My intention is to produce an artistic work based on research and/or in response to writing about video games and video game research theory. The goal is to add to the cultural, interpersonal, and interpretational discourse surrounding video games and the gaming industry.
