Art Games in the House of Fire

What you see here is the view from my window.  I’m in the top level of a turn-of-the-19th-century firehouse, in Burlington Vermont.  The old structure has been converted into a downtown center for the arts, and at the moment the entire ground floor has been transformed into a stylish arcade of some of the most notable “art games” (or, artistic games) of the past 3 years or so.   The show is called Game (Life) and it’s on display until February 13th if you want to come check it out.

Up here in the tower, I’m the Artist in Residence for a week.  I’m primarily working on an oral/visual history of Kokoromi and Gamma’s first four years, which I’ll present at a lecture on Friday evening at Champlain College, just up the hill.   I’ll also be doing an artist’s talk and discussion here at the Firehouse on Saturday evening, followed by a reception.   At that one I’ll talk more about my Live Game Code project, and SUGAR, since it’s on display here in the gallery arcade.
