STEAM HIGH FIVE – Highly Interactive Art

ART THAT CAN AND SHOULD BE PLAYED WITH

Video games serve a lot of purposes in our lives; from good fun to immersive escapism, family night options to a powerful cathartic release. Through all of this, it’s sometimes easy to forget that at its core video games are another vehicle for art, albeit a highly interactive one, and carry with them a wide variety of expressive intents that art brings with it. Maybe you’d find it enlightening to pause for a moment and consider the artistic expertise intertwined within our favorite games. Or we can continue to dive in, head first (figuratively, please) and lose ourselves in the ultimate enjoyment of experiencing other vast worlds, lore, and adventure.
