April 13th 2009 I will give a talk and participate in a panel organized at MIT Museum based on my idea of designing a WOW pod for addicted players! Design that we will have finished this week (more pictures soon…). It should be fun and y’aura du beau monde!

On the WOW Pod: A Design for Extimacy and Fantasy-Fulfillment for the World of Warcraft Addict.

A panel discussion about the inducement of pleasure, fantasy fulfillment, and the mediation of intimacy in a socially-networked gaming paradigm such as World of Warcraft (WOW). Participants include Raimundas Malauskas (curator, Artists Space, NY); Visiting Scientist Jean Baptiste LaBrune (Media Lab); Laura Knott (Associate Curator, MIT Museum); MIT Gambit Lab researcher (TBA), and co-artists Marisa Jahn, Steve Shada, and Cati Vaucelle.
