  • AAARTGAMES 018: Ecologies

    Spektrum

    From Conway's Game of Life in 1970 to the massively popular Minecraft, videogames/simulations/virtual environments have existed in some form or another as digital ecosystems. These ecosystems, often in harmonious balance, are presented to the player as a personal sandbox to be destroyed and extracted of resources without consequence. How do these virtual ecosystems reflect our perceptions of our own habitat, and what other forms of ecologies are possible? AAARTGAMES is a community event for anybody and everybody interested in interactive art/games/design/technology. Organised by AAA. +++ ★ AGENDA ★ - 7:30 - Doors Open - 8:00 - Event Start! ---- 18.0: Ecologies by Merle Leufgen ---- Introduction by Troy Duguid ---- 18.1: A History of Trash by Gabriel Helfenstein ---- 18.2: Like Roots in the Soil by SpaceBackyard !QUICK BREAK! ---- 18.3: Strange Space Weather, a talk on virtual ecologies and economies and the collaborative project https://pattern.ist. ---- 18.4: PostEvent Game: Orchids to Dusk by Pol Clarissou // More coming sooon... - 9:00 - socialising + draaanks +++ Absolutely everybody is welcome, all levels of experience and all walks of life!!! - So long as you RSVP ;^) +++ AAARTGAMES = $AF€ $PAC€ POLIC¥

  • ★ aaartgames XVII: Truth/Untruth Beauty/Unbeauty ★ transmediale Vorspiel 2018

    Computer generated imagery permeates our every day lives, both as unrecognizably interlaced with our realities and as visible grotesques of these. Following the theme of this year's transmediale 'face value' this edition of aaartgames aims to raise questions around creational biases in 3d software, 'ugly' videogames, seamless technology and acid cgi. starting from Alan Warburton's (in certain online circles heavily debated) thesis that the battle for truly realistic computer graphics has been won we will take a look at how computer generated imagery and systems, in their real-time and pre rendered manifestations, might call for re/evaluations and restructuring of our notions of beauty and ugliness, truth and un truth. Welcome to the wilderness. aaartgames is a community event for anybody and everybody interested in interactive art/games/design/technology. +++ ★ AGENDA ★ - 7:30 - Doors Open - 8:00 - Event Start! ---- Goodbye Uncanny Valley - a video essay by Alan Warburton ---- Truth/Untruth Beauty/Unbeauty - a talk by Merle Leufgen !QUICK BREAK! ---- Ugly - a short film by Nikita Diakur ---- Skype QnA with Nikita Diakur - 9:00 - socialising + draaanks +++ Absolutely everybody is welcome, all levels of experience and all walks of life!!! - So long as you RSVP ;^) +++ ★ ąяţǥąʍ€$ ★ = $AF€ $PAC€ POLIC¥
