How will videogames influence the future of art?
The fusion of artistic vision and the essential ingredient of humanity (you) is what makes videogames as an artform unique. Boundless creativity is no longer restrained by physical work, and ever-emerging technologies that surround us and have become integral to our lives.
Join artist, media producer and storyteller Albert Chessa for this keynote presentation exploring how videogames and interactivity are evolving the very nature of art itself.
