I AM 8 BIT… waka waka

“i am 8-bit is the voice of a generation that refuses to let polygons beget pixels”

A very interesting art expo will be held at Los Angeles during April and May this year: I Am 8 Bit. Finally, a tribute to the artistic merits of the brave works from a generation that defined the gaming medium out of nothing. If you look at the concepts of the supposedly-modern games such as Half-Life 2 or Doom 3, you’ll soon realize that they aren’t much different than PacMan: Corridors, Enemies, Powerups…

I’m a firm believer that thanks to the democratization of content delivery and creative possibilities that the internet is giving to the masses, a new generation of Artists will emerge that will have tributes like this in 30 years. Artists capable of truly expressing something through the means of interactivity. Game Artists.
