Modalities of Space in Video and Computer Games

“Abstract: During the last 30 years computer and videogames have grown into a large entertainment industry of economical as well as cultural and social importance. As a distinctive field of academic inquiry begins to evolve in the form of game studies, the majority of approaches can be identified as emerging either from a background of literary theory which motivates a concentration on narrative structures or from a dedicated focus on the rules in video and computer games. However, one of the most evident properties of those games is their shared participation in a variety of spatial illusions. Although most researchers share the view that issues related to mediated space are among the most significant factors characterising the new medium, as of yet, no coherent conceptual exploration of space and spatial representation in video and computer games has been undertaken.

Alternate Perspectives

Floating Eye

[…] (photo by Saxinger) Floating Eye (2001), by Hiroo Iwata (VRlab), is an interactive installation that separates vision from the body. The participant can only see wide-angle image floating in the air. The image is captured by a wireless camera attached to an airship, pulled along by the user. The participants can see themselves from above, along with the surrounding area.

A large helmet provides the immersive experience. This helmet contains a convex mirror, with a projector mounted at the rear, so the image takes up the users whole field of view. The movie belows shows how this works. Movie (10mb mpeg) More images and video. Continue reading

Mobile Broadcast Unit

The G.R.L. rolls out its newest probably-not-street-legal vehicle, the Mobile Broadcast Unit: audio, projection and L.A.S.E.R. tag systems all mounted on a big tricycle. Last Friday, the G.R.L went to war against boredom and had a blast riding and writing with Critical Mass in Brooklyn. Beginning in the summer in NYC you will be able to borrow the MBU to wage your own personal wars in the city. Stay Tuned. Continue reading

90 Degrees Equatorial Project

JAMES GEURTS’ 90 Degrees Equatorial Project :: through May 19 :: EXPERIMENTAL ART FOUNDATION :: Lion Arts Centre North Terrace at Morphett Street, Adelaide, Australia 5000 :: eaf[at]eaf.asn.au.

90 Degrees Equatorial Project combines three aspects of Geurts’ practice – photography, video and site-specific installations. The works are primarily abstract documentation generated by situated on-site performance. Geurts works with video by manipulating live feed to force errors in the recording process. Abstraction of real-time into video static opens the possibility of unexpected relationships between visual and aural elements. Continue reading

Experimentations with art and technology have multiplied in the last three decades with the use of several kinds of creation, production and distribution by artists. Those possibilities are emphasized particularly through the internet and its popularization in the 90’s and more recently through the wireless devices and the virtual multi-user environments. The purpose of this presentation is to bring a brief panorama pointing out some artists, as well as to present some recent personal artistic works such as interactive installations and videogame.
