2017 marked the 50th anniversary of GEN CON, and as an active participant, Fiona undertook an ethnography on foot of one of the largest gaming convention in the world. By attending seminars, participating in game demo, consumer culture, to observe the nuances of gaming subcultures, Fiona created a photo-essay of the visual sensory narrative of gaming.

"With 500+ exhibiting companies from the game industry, award-winning authors and artists, costumed attendees, more than 19,000 events, a Family Fun Pavilion, and the debut of exciting new games, Gen Con truly is The Best Four Days in Gaming™!"
