Often associated with gaming fan cultures, machinima (the practice of using video game footage in films and animation) has seen the rise of a critical practice, employed by contemporary artists. At one point does machinima move from fan cultures to artistic discourse? How are the aesthetic/ narrative/ commentaries different between fan employment of machima and artists’ employment of machinima? What are the common tools used to accomplish such works?
Join us for a critical conversation about machinima and its intersections with contemporary art practice, spanning a discussion of games, glitch art, live performance and more.
