Curators turned sports commentators Jon Uriarte and Marco De Mutiis will present artistic projects that have been created using in-game photography. The works address questions of photorealism, simulation, photographic practices in and against video games. Uriarte and De Mutiis ultimately ask the help of the audience to choose what they consider to be the most exciting and best work. Visitors play an important part in the process: they can cast their vote and decide who amongst the artists did it better in in-game photography!
This event is part of Capturing the (Game) World: Over the last two decades a new photographical practice evolved in the realm of the digital: In-Game Photography. Open world computer games are increasingly shipped with an implemented photo mode, users post game snapshots to their social media timelines as a matter of course, and artists present their in-game photo works in museums and galleries.
Capturing the (Game) World is a series of events which invites students, scholars, artists, photographers, hobbyists as well as professionals, gamers as well as non-gamers, theorists as well as practitioners to explore the quickly developing new photography practice called in-game photography. The series offers insightful talks - about the practice, aesthetics, and the history of in-game photography - as well as hands-on workshops to explore photography in games and in-game photographical techniques.
