This was a Project exploring the concept of Social media as game. This came about after some interest in board games and an introspection on the board game ‘Game of Life’
The publication visually explores, in an introspective way how you would explain the ‘game’ of social media.
“when playing the game, you may not have realised, but you unconsciously agreed to engage in voluntary conflict, and follow a specific set of rules that govern the conflict. Game designers call this the ‘Magic Circle’.
We enter the circle, follow the rules and try to win. when the game ends, we leave the circle and return to normal. - The magic circle is what separates game from reality.”
We sit down to play a game knowing that it’s a complete fantasy, and on the other hand how much are we aware that Social media is not fantasy?www.claregibsonportfolio.co.uk
