The Art of Video Games 2014


Mastering the Arts: The Macrocosm and the Microcosm

Video games evolve towards two opposite directions. Some become more sophisticated, spectacular and epic, while others diversify into small games with artistic auras. Contrasting the games on a large screen with those on smartphones, the exhibition seeks to investigate the variation and interaction of games in different carriers and visual effects. We attempt to expound that the difference between the two does not lie so much in the size of screen but in the way they interact with the real world, which is why the exhibition is entitled “Mastering the Arts: The Macrocosm and the Microcosm.”
