Kara Gut – Intimacy Mod

<p>Using the mod “Immersive Lover’s Comfort” by flexcreator, Intimacy Mod distorts the intended narrative and replaces it with an in-game performance carried out by the player-character and an npc. Locations for each performance depend on precariousness, visibility, and absurdity, allowing two characters to obstruct the normal ebb and flow of life in the action role-playing game Skyrim.</p><p><br></p><p> These performances posit the question: does mediation through digital space take us further from human experience, or closer? Perhaps in the absence of a real body, an entirely new language of performance can occur; an alternative mode of expression not tied to physical identities.</p>
