The article identifies the specific nature of spatiality as one of the most important aspects of contemporary networked game environments and presents a close reading of Henri Lefebvre's spatial theories in order to gain a different perspective towards the subject. Artistic interventions in the form of online performances by artists such as Eddo Stern and Joseph DeLappe are discussed as exemplary forms of critical engagement with these emerging immersive environments.
