ImGame interweaves serious gaming and immersive aesthetics. It serves as a tool to interactively demonstrate the research results concerning the phenomenon of immersiveness in contemporary art.
Globally, there are almost no playful and educational media that would teach the history of contemporary art. ImGame invites the user to dive into the immersive stylistics used in new media art and other types of modern culture.
The objective of the project is to develop a new genre of gaming in the crosscut of serious and art games that documents the cultural capital of contemporary aesthetics, especially focusing on the young artists’ work in the three partner states – Latvia, Hungary, and Greece. As well as, bringing closer knowledge about contemporary artistic to the general public not just to the connoisseurs of art.
The project continues to develop the prototype of game designed through a post-doctoral project of Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences. Next to the prototype of ImGame, a scientific article will be published to present the results of the project.
