In a Gamescape: Landscape, Reality, Storytelling and Identity in Video Games
This event has ended.
Among other works, video games as a form of contemporary culture are being awarded at the Japan Media Arts Festival, and continue to exert an ever-growing influence on society. Video games reflect the present state of society and also serve as a means for predicting future developments.
With a particular focus on indie games and video game art as two distinctive recent trends, this exhibition examines the latest video games along with the original culture they help define, to see what hints they may offer regarding social currents.
The term “gamescape” as used in the exhibition title was coined to refer to the (social) landscape mapped out through games, and to express the novel views and values that video games inspire in their creators and players alike.
