The aesthetics of video games are rerouted to create works of art, music, and cinema that subvert game mechanics and the experience of play. Game artist and machinima maker Chris Burke curates a showcase of artists who are using games beyond their intended purpose, as tools for making art. The exhibited works explore the finite, or “knowable,” potential of the programmed game environment.
Annie Ok, Alex Myers, Friedrich Kirschner, Jeff Donaldson, Kent Sheely, Rosa Menkman, Dr. Tom Murphy VII, Ph.D., and Victor Morales
Performances by Tamara Yadao and mrghosty (aka Skot Deeming)
