Emergence, Iteration, and Reincorporation in Larp - Nordic Larp
genevieve costello

This essay proposes an aesthetic model for apprehending narrative and play, in-game and out-of-game experiences in terms of emergence, iteration, and reincorporation. Emergence can be judged with respect to its cultivation of the themes of the larp. Iteration regards the variance and rhythms of a specific game as it repeats material to support its themes.
