Using the mod “Immersive Lover’s Comfort” by flexcreator for Skyrim, Intimacy Mod distorts the intended narrative and replaces it with an in-game performance carried out by the player-character and an npc.  Locations for each performance depend on precariousness, visibility, and absurdity, allowing two characters to obstruct the normal ebb and flow of life in the action role-playing game Skyrim.  Intimacy Mod reflects the cynicism and brutality (unintended or otherwise) of modding culture as a metaphor for our post-digital society at large, creating arresting situations of forced intimacy within a hyper-real space.
