ShameStation: Transposing Freedom from Shame and Guilt from Computer Games to the Real World


Abstract

Is it still possible to attribute emotions towards others, such as shame and guilt, when a person is able to hurt people by controlling another person? ShameStation does not provide an answer to that question, but give users the opportunity to experience transitions from shame and guilt to freedom from these feelings by way of an interactive installation within the recognizable context of a computer game.
