>"Topologies of Desire, Sensation and Affect in Computer
>Games and New Media Art"
>What are the differences and connections between new
>media art and computer games? Whether in an art gallery
>or an arcade, confronting an installation or playing on a
>console, game players and gallery visitors encounter
>experiments with the implications of new media technology
>for desire, sensation and affect. While they are quite different,
>the institutional positions for both game designers and new
>media artists give them conditional licence to escape
>instrumentalism to privilege the invocational image, sensorimotor
>interaction, the generation of desire and the modulation of affect.
>Using examples of works in both fields, this paper illustrates
>some emerging topologies of human-technology relations that
>characterise contemporary and emerging structures of feeling.
