Conceptualizing Screen Practices

Together wir my colleagues Kathrin Friedrich, Christian Stein and Michael Friedman I have edited a volume on head-mounted displays. It is published as a special issue of the journal Media Tropes entiteled: Conceptualizing Screen Practices: How Head-Mounted Displays Transform Action and Perception. Media Tropes is a highly recommendable, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary eJournal devoted to the study of media and mediation and has a committed editorial team. In the special issue we discuss modalities of interaction and space, design requirements, and the demand for practical knowledge in handling HMDs. This is a crucial undertaking for a critical analysis that could also inform developers and users who seek a broader, as well as a deeper, understanding into how new display technologies reshape visual practices.
