Vizgame is maybe one of the first example of an artwork inspired or created as a videogame. In this game the player can create his own real-time animation. The program was created by Jane Veeder in 1985 and runs on a Datamax UV-1 Graphics System.
“Jane Veeder started her career in electronic media arts in 1976 as a video artist and began working with digital computers in 1978. A member of the pioneering Chicago computer graphics community in the early 1980’s, she has produced internationally exhibited animated and interactive computer artworks and designed user interfaces for graphics software development. VIZGAME is an interactive computer animation and sound synthesis installation. The player interacts with graphical menus to draw figures and other graphic processes on the system’s 16 screens to build up a cyclical real-time animation. The player is in control of composing the visual/temporal relationships within the animation as it evolves.” (Jane Veeder)
