Abstract:

This video is an interactive conversation with the audience on the cognitive, aesthetic, and cultural aspects of games as a tool for better understanding how we interact with our senses and the world we live in. Eric Zimmerman is a game designer and academic who has been working in the game industry for more than 20 years; he is also an Arts Professor at the NYU Game Center. John Krakauer is currently a Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience and Director of the Brain, Learning, Animation, and Movement Lab at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He has also co-founded two video gaming groups called Max and Haley, and KATA, which are based on the idea that animal movement based on real physics is highly pleasurable and that this pleasure is hugely heightened when the animal movement is under the control of our own movements.
