Day One @ Ars Electronica
Ludic Memento is an exhibition of this year’s festival focus on gaming. As part of the festival opening in the Tabakfabrik the exhibition was opened for visitors from 10:30 pm to midnight. In the next days we will report on the contents of the exhibition and provide daily images, voices and impressions.
Again important parts of the exhibition are T42 and T42kinect. With these two exhibits we begin the journey from the beginnings of electronic gaming to the present. Cultural tradition under the influence of the media change is presented. Both exhibits show the effect of altered haptics on perception and gaming experience. “Absolutely great! – and important” a visitor writes in the guest book. We are looking forward to this day. At 10:00 o’clock the first visitors are already sitting in front of the doors and waiting for admission.
