Our Research Mission
Aperio: The Games and Spaces Research Group is an initiative in the Experimental Games Lab that seeks to study the properties of spatial media, both digital and physical. Areas of interest include digital games, virtual worlds, urban environments, public places, theme parks, locative media, alternate reality games, and architecture. Not limiting its members to a single approach, Aperio engages in these areas through interdisciplinary undertakings: narrative, aesthetic, technical, procedural, ethnographic, anthropological, cultural and social. Aperio serves as a place for students, faculty, and researcher across the Georgia Tech campus to share resources, engage in discussions and knowledge sharing, and collaborate on projects.
