Game as Art: How Museums Attract New Audiences
We are all aware of the ongoing debate in the game world about whether games can be art or not; however, we don’t seem to give much room for what the art world has to say about this topic.
There are handful of museums and art galleries that have show different forms of games (video games, interactive games, card games…and many other games). In fact, bringing game in museums and galleries is used as an innovative strategy to invite public (including non-art public). Explore different ways museums and galleries exhibit games and write about different types of games as an art form. Perhaps look into interactive games using Arduino, Occulus and Leap Motion and/or games that incorporates various topics such as food games to make a concrete argument about how games are accepted in museums as an art form.
