Title: Transgressive Narrative: Using Queer Failure to Expand the Boundaries of Epiphanic Narrative Structure

 

Abstract: This proposal examines the use of queer failure as a technique for expanding the current understanding of interactive digital narratives (IDN). In this work, I propose a theory of Transgressive Narrative building on the concept of queer failure, which re-frames failure as a culturally contextualized experience rather than merely the opposite of success. Through this reframing it is possible to design fail-states within IDNs which, when encountered by the interactor, leads to an epiphany through the experience of recontextualization, which allows for deeper understanding.
