We’re not the only ones who think games can be an art form, so does Carnegie Mellon University. Instead of just raiding game forums and spouting “STFU!!!Games are art!!!” rhetoric, they’re one-uping us by co-hosting the two-day event of games.
The symposium brings together game developers, artists and researchers to explore creativity in game design and gaming as an expressive medium.
Highlights include “The Art of Play Arcade,” an exhibition where participants can play both independently and commercially created games, along with tours of Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center.
I’d love to attend but I’m way too busy playing COD4. Hey, what if they hooked up some PS360s up with some COD4? Then it could be like a lan party or something.
