The arcade is dead! Long live the arcade!
Curators James Morgan and John Bruneau have brought together local to international video game designers to create a multilayered, challenging community “play” space built around the arcade cabinet as platform for interactive and interpersonal experiences. The arcade has been an important social gathering space and a place to experience new technologies through games. Games on topics from the Occupy movement to ambulance chasing and sports challenges populate individually curated cabinets. Presented by Works as part of the ZERO1 biennial.
