Product Details

Praise

Ambient Play is a much-needed and incredibly useful book for all those interested in how mobile games, as locative and haptic activities, are intertwined with our daily social practices that occur across urban and domestic spaces. Through rigorous ethnographic work, Hjorth and Richardson delve into the exciting ways mobile games are transforming our contemporary lives.”
—Adriana de Souza e Silva, Professor of Communication, North Carolina State University
 
“Larissa Hjorth and Ingrid Richardson’s Ambient Play is an insightful and engaging account of the ways in which people play with mobile media, embracing the multiple forms and meanings that play takes in our lives.”
—Miguel Sicart, Associate Professor, Center for Computer Games Research, IT University of Copenhagen; author of Play Matters
 
Ambient Play looks at play and games where they actually happen—in real life! Though direct observation and study, Hjorth and Richardson open up whole new avenues for thinking about how games fit into our lives.”
—Colleen Macklin, Associate Professor of Media Design, The New School; coauthor of Iterate: Ten Lessons in Design and Failure
