[link]The Art of Video Games

Posted 03 April 2012 - 09:49 AM


Arstechnica had a writer hit up this exhibit by the Smithsonian. It seems pretty nifty and even with some of the criticism I am reading up on I would like to go. A solid time if anyone is in the DC area or where it's on the road.



The Art of Video Games is one of the first exhibitions to explore the forty-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies. It features some of the most influential artists and designers during five eras of game technology, from early pioneers to contemporary designers. The exhibition focuses on the interplay of graphics, technology and storytelling through some of the best games for twenty gaming systems ranging from the Atari VCS to the PlayStation 3. Eighty games, selected with the help of the public, demonstrate the evolution of the medium.
