Guest Curator: Dr. Olli Tapio Leino

New Playable Art showcases contemporary highlights from the overlap of interactive art, expanded cinema, and computer games, by digital natives grown up in computer game worlds.

Between the frivolity of play and the solemnity of fine art, New Playable Art explores the overlap of computer games and art. Brooklyn-based game artist Tabor Robak enlarges the gaming experience of chaos of explosions and blood splatter, and collects the virtual world’s sumptuous treasure stones in the reality, so as to reflect on game culture today. Game research and designer Douglas Wilson inspires our reflection in another way by blending the joy of high-tech games and low-tech pastimes. Try rock climbing on a full-body dance mat or playing around with a music-enabled motion game.
