The final part discusses the terms ‘transparency’ and ‘understanding’ within a historical context. Hence, putting the concept of participation to the test he concludes pleading to think digital cultures differently from a pre-modern perspective, to be more exact in “the terms of the Arcanum”.

The image and the voice/the sound together form a new, multimodal complex meaning for the viewers, or the users, such as the players of the computer game “Frontiers—You’ve reached fortress Europe”8, produced by gold extra art- ists from Salzburg (Austria). It enables its players to experience in a 3D world with authentic sound elements life on both sides of the military border at the Maroccan-Spanish fenceline in Ceuta. The gamers using avatars, play either a refugee or the border patrol in challenging stations

Merleau-Ponty (1964) states: “Visible and mobile, my body is a thing among things, it is one of them. […]Theworld ismade of the very stuff of the body” (124). To extend the player’s embodied existence into the game world, it is essential that the capa- bilities of the body for movement and perception are transformed into the virtual: “[…] to inhabit a computer game the player has to be able to perform her embodied intentionality, or, motility, in the game

digital fabrication technologies with ‘traditional’ constructionist workshops. 2. THE ‘FAB-TAST-O-MATIC’ In the one-year Bachelor project FabLabs, 15 students were asked to create ‘incredible machines’ known from the computer game The Incredible Machine by Sierra Entertainment. The challenge was to combine digital fabrication technolo- gies known from FabLabs with digital media. The project was split into five phases: (1) imagination and rapid-prototyping, (2) general introduction to digital fabrication technology and research, (3) ideation, (4) main development

Next to more or less pho- torealistic game scenes, a multitude of direct and indirect instructions, which overlay the “actual” scenes, determine their effect and use. Benjamin Beil writes about the “computer game image”: “Often it is covered with interface
