"Gamescenes" is a book about Game Art. Game Art is any art in which digital games played a significant role in the creation, production, and/or displayed of the artwork. How can artists make art with videogames? Todd Deutsch takes pictures of game players during exhausting contests; Tobias Bernstrup creates music performances and invents fabulous worlds; Eddo Stern builds fortresses and ships animated by videos; Jon Haddock uses game graphics to reproduce news items; Alison Mealey and Delire re-program the game so as to turn it into a sort of 'automatic painting machine'. This is a unique publication - 32 international artists, over 320 colour pictures and in-depth analysis - the first reference book for all artistic expressions made with and on videogames, an attempt to free videogames from being 'evil machines' and grant them a new recognition as cultural medium.
