◥ Part of Terraforms - Game Mods at Babycastles ◥
Curated by Sarah Brin and Zach Gage
( v. ) 1. to modify a world's environment so that it can support Earth life-forms, especially humans.
An exhibition dedicated to game artists and their radical reconfigurations of traditional gamescapes.
As we move further into the digital realm, the rules that govern it are becoming increasingly transparent. What was once clearly articulated has become an amorphous set of unchallenged rules and sociological boundaries. Despite their subtlety, these digital restrictions, much like the natural laws of the physical world, affect every aspect of the increasingly virtual lifestyles we lead.
Yet, the virtural world is made of code, and its rules can be broken. These seven artists move outside of digital boundaries, forcibly modifying gamescapes while pressing us to rethink our beliefs.
