UCLA Game Art Festival: Night at the Hammer


UCLA Game Art Festival: Night at the Hammer

The Hammer Student Association in collaboration with the UCLA Game Lab presents an evening of innovative gaming as part of the annual UCLA Game Art Festival, curated by Game Lab director and associate professor of Design Media Arts Eddo Stern. With games ranging from the bombastic and performative to the intimate and personal, these ambitious and participatory projects use a variety of media and modes of expression. See the games or participate in a tournament while enjoying live music from UCLA PhD candidate in Musicology Mike "The Attic Bat" D'errico, a live DJ set from COLE and refreshments.

We at the UCLA GAME LAB and UCLA Design Media Arts were so moved when we saw Caine’s arcade and then read about his interest in UCLA, we felt compelled to do something to involve Caine in what we do here at UCLA. His spirit, creativity, dedication and Do-It-Yourself approach are precisely the kinds of values we strive to instill and nurture in our culture here. In addition to inviting Caine to present his arcade in the UCLA Game Art Festival at the Hammer Museum, we have created a residency opportunity for Caine so that he can have the opportunity to develop new work under the guidance of our faculty and graduate students in the GAME LAB while gaining exposure to the specialized field of game design.

More info about the event can be found on the facebook event page.
