PolyPlay 2020: Submissions due March 15, 2020!

OPEN TO GAMERS, 3D ANIMATORS, VR ARTISTS, AND OTHER NEW MEDIA-BASED ART

PolyPlay is SAIC’s annual experimental arcade gallery held by ExTV in the middle of the spring semester. We have seen in recent years, the swift emergence of technology within the art world without much time to reflect on the purpose of the medium itself specifically in relation to its inherent necessitation of direct audience engagement. Unlike other forms of time-based media art, such as performance events or film screenings, video games have yet to define its objective within the context of art galleries. We showcase and welcome new games made by students (present or graduated) exploring the new media world. 

In the past, we have exhibited computer-operated games, along with performances, interactive sculptures, experimental art games/objects, 3D animations, virtual reality works, etc.
