Critical Play: Radical Game Design

Critical Play: Radical Game Design by Mary Flanagan, MIT Press:

For many players, games are entertainment, diversion, relaxation, fantasy. But what if certain games were something more than this, providing not only outlets for entertainment but a means for creative expression, instruments for conceptual thinking, or tools for social change? In Critical Play, artist and game designer Mary Flanagan examines alternative games—games that challenge the accepted norms embedded within the gaming industry — and argues that games designed by artists and activists are reshaping everyday game culture.

Reblogged “Kate Armstrong Interview” by Greg J. Smith

Kate Armstrong / Grafik Dynamo[Image: Kate Armstrong & Michael Tippett / Grafik Dynamo / 2004-2005] Kate Armstrong is a Vancouver-based artist and theorist with a panache for new media powered permutational storytelling. Her work questions the nature of narrative in light of computation, social media and contemporary urban space. She has exhibited widely and is currently en route to Turkey for the March 8th launch of PATH, a bookwork generated by “an anonymous individual living in the city of Montreal between 2005-2007” at the Akbank Art Centre in Istanbul. Above and beyond her creative practice, she is the author of Crisis and Repetition: Essays on Art and Culture, sits on the board at The Western Front artist-run centre and is a lecturer at Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts + Technology.

Live Stage: The Story of Batya M. [il Jerusalem]

Sala-Manca Group presents in the frame of the series Something Different by the Jerusalem Foundation & Gerard Bechar Center: The Story of Batya M. — An original telenovela screening with life dubbing performance by Sala-Manca Group with the live music performance of Yarden Erez (composer of the film soundtrack) :: June 10, 2009; 9:00 pm :: Leo Model, Gerard Bechar, Jerusalem.

The Story of Batya M. is the last (and unique) chapter of a fictional Argentinean “telenovela” (soap opera) projected on the screen and experienced as live performance. In a live performance the two leading actors from the film dub the scenes (from Spanish into English). The language they use changes, the translation becomes dubious, the design of the subtitles and the conventions of the genre are also transformed and subverted. Continue reading

Building_Space_with_Words [us Brooklyn, NY]

Building_Space_with_Words by Anne-Laure Fayard and Aileen Wilson :: until March 27, 2009 :: NYU-Poly, Wunsch Building, 311 Bridge Street, Brooklyn, NY + webcam.

Like its co-creator, Anne-Laure Fayard, a social scientist whose background spans the disciplines of philosophy to human-computer interaction, Building_Space_with_Words doesn’t fit into a neat category. The month-long art installation is part experiment, part research artifact, part think-piece. Ms. Fayard, an NYU-Poly assistant professor of management, and co-creator, Aileen Wilson, an associate professor of art and design at Pratt Institute, designed Building_Space_with_Words as a hybrid offline/online environment that asks: Continue reading

Cyberculture and New Media

Cyberculture and New Media, edited by Francisco J. Ricardo, Amsterdam/ New York, NY 2009.

In the extension of digital media from optional means to central site of activity, the domains of language, art, learning, play, film, and politics have been subject to radical reconfigurations as mediating structures. This book examines how this changed relationship has in each case shaped a new form of discourse between self and culture and illustrates explicitly the character of mediated agency beyond the formal separateness from lived experience that was once conveniently termed the virtual and which has come to influence common assumptions about creative expression itself.

State of the Union Updated

State of the Union Website Explores the Decline of Political Language 1790-2009: A Software Art Project by Brad Borevitz — The update of Brad Borevitz’s State of the Union website includes Barack Obama’s first major address of his tenure, the 2009 address to the joint session of Congress and the American people on February 24th.

Lamenting the triumph of iconicity over rhetoricity, Borevitz describes the gradual changes in political speech from argument to brand. The project asks us to consider if evidence for this assertion exists in the language of the State of the Union address which stands as a controlled sample of political speech over the course of U.S. history.
