Annie Ok: “My Life as an Avatar″ in “Game Art in the Knowable Space” show at CultureHub, Nov 7

My art film series “My Life as an Avatar” has been invited to be exhibited at CultureHub in the “Game Art in the Knowable Space” show curated by Chris Burke.


Game Art in the Knowable Space

The aesthetics of video games are rerouted to create works of art that subvert game mechanics and the experience of play. Game artist and machinima maker Chris Burke curates a showcase of artists who are using games beyond their intended purpose, as tools for making art. The exhibited works explore the finite, or “knowable,” potential of the programmed game environment.

Game Art In The Knowable Space presents works that are not games in themselves, but artworks inspired by the treatment of space in video games. Some of the works examine the aleatoric, uncanny aspects of game space while others build out their own spaces to be explored.
