Computer Art

Here are two news items about computer art that fit together nicely. Firstly, Valve's Portal 2 won best game and best design at the BAFTA Video Game Awards yesterday. It won the Golden Joystick last year. Above is Chell, your character who guides the escapee robot of Portal 2. CLICK for a list of winners. Secondly, the Smithsonian American Art Museum has just opened The Art of Video Games, which it claims is one of the first exhibitions in the world to explore the evolution of video games as an artistic medium (title link). This prompted BBC News' Washington correspondent, Jane O'Brien, to gush, "Video games represent more than an evolving form of entertainment. They are also a platform for innovative art" (CLICK). Strewth! The BBC has finally woken up! I've been saying this for decades.
