Videogames are firmly enmeshed in modern culture. Acknowledging the increasing cultural impact of this rapidly changing industry, "Videogames ans Art" is one of the first books devoted to the study of videogame art -a vibrant, developing genre of digital art- featuring in-depth essays that offer an unparalleled overview of the field.
The distinguished contributors range broadly over this vast intellectual terrrain, positioning videogame art as an interdisciplinary mix of digital technologies and the traditions of pictorial art. In tracing the hsitory of this emerging genre, they examine machinima and game console artwork, politically-oriented videogame art and the production of digital art. There is also a series of interviews in which prominent videogame artists discuss their work.
An essential volume for our digital age, "Videogames and Art" will be a fascinating read for players, fans and scholars.
