John Sharp: Games, Game Art, Artgames and Artist’s games

March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Center for Computer Games Research invites you to a talk by John Sharp on Thursday, 21st of March.

John is a game designer, graphic designer, art historian, educator and Associate Professor of Games and Learning at the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons School of Design.

The talk ‘Games, Game Art, Artgames and Artist’s games’ will synthesize the main arguments found in his book ‘Works of Game: On the Asthetics of Games and Art’, which explores the conceptualization and creation of game based artworks from three perspectives: the appropriation of video game specific tools for the creation of artwork, artgames as a medium for artistic expression and artists’ games where the creators use games as a vehicle for a particular instantiation of artistic expression.
