I like Art that challenges me.
[This Video Game] was created as an art-class project by three students at the University of California, San Diego, John Brennan, Mike Caloud and Jeff Cole. They said their goal was to reinterpret a historic moment by transplanting it to the medium with which they were most familiar: computer games. Inured to the distant televised images of Sept. 11, they hoped an immersive, interactive version would restore an immediacy to the day’s horrors.
Videogames are great Art. I think they’re the most rich Media available, cause they communicate Experience. People still look at them as toys, childish distraction, but they’re not. I wrote a Educational Psychology paper about their Educational use. I think they’re the next Artistic frontier. And they make mad loot.
