This body of work is from the continuation of a year-long investigation into gaming anonymity, environment, emotion, and self. This selection from the final series is a reflection of my involvement and interest in gaming, depicted as desolation and alienation because I have never been able to justify spending eleven hours of my day playing on a game console. My involvement and emotions for gaming are echoed in the images of burning and washed up consoles, coupled with an attempt to make gaming more appealing with cake. Throughout this project I have relished the challenges it has presented, from fighting the weather outdoors, experimenting with lighting in the studio, and the unpredictable nature of fire.
