So, who is going to be in New York on October 7th? Anybody?
Should you be in the Big Apple I recommend you hit up the MoMA and see the premiere of, 8 BIT, a documentary about art and video games.

Taken straight from the horse’s mouth:

“8 BIT is a hybrid documentary examining the influence of video games on contemporary culture.

A mélange of a rocumentary, art expose and a culture-critical investigation, 8 BIT ties together seemingly disconnected phenomena like the 80’s demo scene, chiptune music and contemporary artists using machinima and modified games…

More and trailer after the jump…

“With the help of media critic Ed Halter and new media curator and writer Christiane Paul, these very recent artistic strategies are put in the historical context of modernist and postmodernist discourse and examined as potential examples of a transition into fresh, uncharted territory.

8 BIT insists that in the 21st century Game-Boy rock, machinima and game theory belong together and share a common root: the digital heritage of Generation X.”

Did anyone else catch that? They put our artistic pursuits into the context of modernism and beyond!

I always knew it. We are like, way fucking past postmodernism.

Here is to hoping they move the show around to the State or Michigan theater. We could have a Glitch Feed field trip.

side note – the documentary features Teamtendo, how can it not be awesome.
