Telfair Museums’ annual PULSE Art + Technology Festival is back for 2019!
On opening night, PULSE Curator Harry DeLorme will lead a conversation with renowned game designer Keita Takahashi, looking at his path from art to videogames, his unorthodox approach, and the intent underlying his games. Takahashi was the director of the landmark game Katamari Damacy, which was named one of the best games of the year (2004) by Time Magazine, received numerous awards including “Best Game Design” at the Game Developers Conference in 2005, and was acquired in 2012 for the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Takahashi and his work have appeared frequently throughout the years in print and electronic media including The Guardian, Wired, Boing Boing, Engadget, and game news outlets too numerous to mention. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear from one of the world’s most individual creative forces.
At 7pm, view large-scale projections by media artist John Colette.
Members free / non-members $8.
