Juno Morrow: The Value of Game-Making

About this event

RSVP is required to attend! Limited in-person attendance available for current NYU students, faculty, adjuncts, and staff only (per NYU's COVID rules). For alumni and the general public, we hope to welcome you back in-person soon, and the talk will be live-streamed at twitch.tv/nyugamecenter!

About the talk:

Why should we make games? Discourse about the value of games (or lack of value) usually focuses on players, but what of the value of creation? Join us for a talk with artist and educator Juno Morrow, who'll discuss the value of game-making in her own artistic practice, where her body of work over the last decade has proved valuable for catharsis, novelty, absurdity, and other meaningful expressions. As an award-winning photographer whose work grew to encompass interactive installations, custom body sensors, clicker games, virtual and augmented reality, autobiographical games and more, Juno's practice explores varied emotional, philosophical and personal terrain across multiple disciplines, weaving together beautiful lights and dark humor, meditations on perception, translation and dimensionality. As the head of the first public game design degree in New York City, at CUNY Hostos Community College in the South Bronx, she also has much to say on the potential value of creative practice for her students and other underserved student populations.
