As video games have matured as a medium people have begun to critique and analyze what it is about games that make them a unique medium. The prevailing thought is that the rule sets of games are what make games unique. Players, or participants, interact with systems of rules that artists create. Artists create these rules for a specific purpose. Similar to how painters may use surface and color to create a painting that communicates with a viewer, an artist working with a rule system may use rules and feedback to create an interactive system that communicates with a viewer. This communication occurs through the rule system itself (input, feedback, information, requirements of participant, etc.) to convey ideas, elicit responses, express identity; essentially anything the artist can dream up and execute on.
This exhibition will not be juried.
During the summer, the Living Arts and Science Center plays host to a variety of children's educational classes. While your work does not need to cater to children specifically it should be appropriate for an audience that includes children as well as be able to endure the types of activity that exuberant youngsters can inflict upon it.
RunJumpDev is a non-profit organization targeted at development of independent games in Kentucky. To find out more about the organization, please find us at runjumpdev.org.
