Free this Thurs: Mods and Hackers at PDC

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

It's official, video games are art. But you already knew that, right? Celebrate belatedly with a visit to "Mods & Hackers," a series of interactive videos by artists who borrow from inspiration from video games. The exhibition will be at the Young Projects Gallery in the Pacific Design Center.

Expect to see small monitor pieces to large-scale installations. According to the site, some even use technologies never been used in contemporary art spaces before:
Daniel Franke’s “Durchsehen” (“Augmented Perspective”, 2011) for instance, uses video camouflage techniques developed by the military to make a cement block dematerialize before the viewer’s eyes. Audri Phillips and Jon 9, by contrast, will be enhancing dimensionality by using an autostereoscopic 3D screen by Alioscopy, which produces an extraordinarily deep image without viewing glasses.
Now that would be a sight to see.

Opening: May 26, 5:30-8:30 pm
