The research of ↑Andrew Mactavish “focuses on the participatory and performative elements of digital game play, especially within the context of a politics of cultural production and consumption. I am interested in how digital games and gamers “play” with and within cultural and social arrangements of power.” Currently he is “writing a paper on the cultural politics of game mods, which are player-designed modifications to digital games, mainly PC games. These modifications include game levels, total conversions, character skins, and machinima. Part of this research entails the development of an (eventually) online database of game mod tools.” And he has a blog: ↑Andrew’s Blah Blah Blog.
