8 Bit

NEW DOCS

An international movement encompassing conceptual artists, gamers, and electronic musicians subverts the symbolic logic and power structures inherent in game design. These artists grew up with Atari, Nintendo, and the Commodore 64 as part of their everyday life, and their work imagines deeper possibilities of user-driven autonomy. Interviews with programmers, musicians and DJs, video artists and contemporary art curators, interrogate the meaning of digital technology and how we perceive it.  KH
