Gram, więc jestem. Instancja autorska a konwencja „let’s play” w serii „File System Aging” Roberta Florence’a
Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to analyse let’s play not only as entertaining act of communication but also as an eclectic one which can make games exceed themselves. Let’s play as a method of game critique has developed some key characteristics. It’s not surprising, then, that one can observe the emergence of various subversive forms such as Robert Florence’s series “File System Aging” which rises as antithesis to the most popular channels. Florence directs his own player experience by merging software studies, ludology, stream of consciousness, and oneiric aesthetics known from David Lynch’s movies in order to defragment scattered memory of a gamer and a son. This article will look into the method of transgressive playformance and haptic interpretation used by the artist to expand the definition of a let’s play and therefore also that of a game.
