Vector Games Art festival is about to kick off very soon, and I proud to say I have some (small) involvement with it. The festival itself is both thought-provoking and necessary:
Other Worlds (co-curated by Prosthetic Knowledge and mrghosty), is an exhibition which addresses digital space as procedural landscapes. Rather than creating games where prescribed routes and narratives directing player movement and action, the works of Other Worlds position the player as a digital flaneur; free to move anywhere within these worlds, while occupying the position of a detached observer.
Other Worlds features the Canadian exhibition debut of The Night Journey, created by Bill Viola and Tracy Fullerton.
Other Worlds features works by : Luis Hernandez, Alex Myers & Jeff Thompson, Lea Albaugh, Arcane Kids, Ed Key & David Kanaga, Alan Kwan, Cyril Lecomte-Languérand, and Axel Shokk.
