THE BUZZ: Not only can video games be art, but they can also be the inspiration for art—and the yearly gaming-related art exhibit, Into The Pixel, has opened submissions for this year’s showing.
EGM’s TAKE: Since 2004, Into The Pixel has stood as “an exploration and celebration of the art of video games from around the world.” As with previous years, the exhibit—put together by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, and the Entertainment Software Association—is looking for gaming-related art submissions to be revealed and featured at E3 (running June 5th through 7th).
Entries will be selected by a panel of jurors, which this year is composed of the following jurists:
- Bob Rafei, Big Red Button Entertainment, Founder, CEO and Visual Director
- Eddo Stern, UCLA Games Lab, Director
- Glenn Phillips, Getty Research Institute, Senior Project Specialist & Consulting Curator, Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art
- Ian Milham, Electronic Arts’ Visceral Games, Creative Director
- Jon Gibson, iam8bit, Founder and Partner
- Matt Hall, Timbuk2 Studios, Senior Partner Production Designer
- Nora Dolan – Independent Curator
- Ryan Wilkerson, Microsoft Game Studios, Senior Art Director
- Seth Spaulding, Blizzard Entertainment, Art Manager
- Shane Caudle, Epic Games, Principal Artist
