For my ethnographic study this semester, I decided to focus on young video game streamers and their spatial awareness as well as how they respond to certain questions being asked of them. After hours upon hours of researching, I was unable to find sufficient data to explore the practice, which made me shift my ethnography’s focus towards video game streamers in general and how they react to different actions in the game. I came up with this concept after Week 5 when we focused on Digital Ethnography. Using this method, I was able to set a basic foundation for the rest of my research as well as create a scheme to follow.
The video essay below will be showcasing the data I collected as well as using clips from other YouTube videos to further explore the practice.
