Synopsis : Critical Play, otherwise referred to as ART 381 in academic lore, is a rigorous art and videogame course which has had members look intensively at the narratology and expressive values of computer games through studio practice. This exhibition is a synthesis of their creative efforts, their imaginative interpretation of the challenges before them, and a totem of their charismatic will towards supporting one another and forging identities through art. You are invited to look at videogames in a different light than what you may be familiar with : optioning the academic over the entertaining, the creative in the famililar, and the cool in school.
