Reflections of Seven
I guess I felt mixed feelings most about the differences between art and video games, and that Hutamo was relatively quick to dismiss games as not being art, I would say much of the appeal of the game is how it feels, what emotions it brings, despite the great degree of interactivity each game carries its own emotion context. I would definitely be more for bridging this gap, rather than trying to make distinctions and drawing lines. Another aspect of this essay, is the technological perspective. With our daily lives becoming more and more stimulating I would say that its only natural that art should keep pace. Interactive visual and audio experiences have become much more integral in our daily lives that going to a gallery and not being able to interact would be so under stimulating. When you think about how cave paintings compare to the lives of cavemen, the art that we have today has hardly kept pace.
