Robbie Cooper's Immersion

I nearly blogged about Robbie Cooper's Immersion, when I saw some of the work featured in a Sunday Times article back in April, which coincided with an exhibition at the National Media Museum.  I didn't - partly because I wasn't sure of the status of the clips I found on YouTube.

However, his work came to mind when talking to PhD student at a recent training event in the library, so I thought I would share the following with you.  The concept is simple - film young people playing computer games.

It has lost none of its power to shock in the intervening six months, but don't be too upset - as the comments on YouTube suggest, we all look a bit weird when we are concentrating...

If you are going to be fazed by watching people masturbate, you should avoid the follow up piece - people watching porn, embedded below.
