Hunting for fun is a project that draws on ethnographic field work of collaborative hunting. The studies reveal how the hunters fine-tune their experience through temporal and spatial organization. The hunt is organized in a way that allows the hunters to balance between forms of collaboration ranging from solitude to face-to-face interaction, as well as between attentiveness and relaxation. Understanding these experiential qualities is relevant for collaborative gaming; design of mobile tools for user generated content, and adds to our understanding of leisure.
