Strange Arcade – IndieCade East

co-curated and organized with Brian S. Chung
IndieCade East & The Museum of the Moving Image

The creative act frequently resists the constraints from which it is born. For designers of games and interactive experiences, the challenge of creating experiences that are both expressive and replicable has proved a productive tension, resulting in unique controllers, unusual displays, and novel interactions that incite curiosity and undermine expectations.

Strange Arcade features dozens of games and experiences that use costume controllers, embedded media technologies, reappropriated consumer devices, and other subverted technologies to create strange play performances and explore new ways of sharing stories.
