Fission Mailed, an interactive full-day exhibition exploring the evolution of video games, will take place in London’s The White Building on June 29.
The exhibition—whose full title reads as Fission Mailed: The Art of Gaming and was adopted from the video game “Metal Gear Solid 2”, in which you have to appear to fail in order to advance the plot—asks the question: Can the other-wordly, utopic/dystopic experiences of videogames provide authentic experiences of art?
Throughout the day, the pop-up exhibition will feature an interplay of graphics, technology and storytelling, as well as a host of multi-player games open to the public to try out, and will feature the work of progressive game developers such as Anna Anthropy, Sophie Houlden and Merritt Kopas.
