How can games help us understand power?
This will be the topic for the first Games Lecture of 2017 tomorrow at 14:00-15:00. Very interesting! Wish we could be there.
Blast Theory is renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups merging games, theatre and technology. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group’s work explores the social and political aspects of technology. Blast Theory has been nominated for four BAFTAs, won the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica, and has just been awarded the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize for their outstanding work in the intersection of art, theatre and new media.
Blast Theory is one of the partners in the Horizon2020-funded GIFT project exploring hybrid forms of virtual museum experiences, coordinated by researchers from the Center for Computer Games Research at ITU. More information: gift.itu.dk.
