Kill Screen will be hosting an event at the New Museum next week featuring contributions from figures across the videogame community including acclaimed artists, designers, and programmers. From the New Museum’s description of the event:
When are games more than games? When they are communicating with others?
Although videogames are bigger than ever, they are often perceived as cultural silos and not in conversation with other art forms or cultures. In conjunction with videogame arts and culture company Kill Screen, Rhizome invites you to an evening of conversations between game designers and new media artists. Divided into three mini-conversations, the talks will explore three areas: artificial intelligence, with Dave Mark and Mary Flanagan; the feeling of digital objects, with Tabor Robak and Katherine Isbister; and games as space, with Casey Reas and Andy Nealen.
So if you’re anywhere near New York and can spare less than ten dollars for a mind-expanding evening, come on down! For additional information about the event and more detailed biographies of the presenters, check out the descriptions by the New Museum and Rhizome.
