It’s that time of the year when the Art Hack Day returns to the 319 Scholes space. 60 hackers and artists will spend three days collaborating, creating and producing new projects. The theme for this year’s Art Hack Day is God mode:
What would you do if you were granted the power of invincibility? It’s an ageold question and one that game developers have been playing with since the early 80s by incorporating a feature called “God Mode” which offers players unlimited strength, seconds of invulnerability, a change in camera perspective, or access to previously unreachable areas. Since then, God Mode has reached beyond gaming and become pervasive in digital life. It’s the secret backdoor embedded in all our electronics, it’s the jailbreak, it’s how phone companies know where you are, it’s how ISPs know where you surf, and it’s how the NSA can eavesdrop on your communications.
Their efforts will be digitally exhibited at the website, but for one night the audience will be invited to interact with the projects in real-time at 319 Scholes. On Saturday, March 2, 2013, the visitors will be invited to participate in festivities that will include live performances and a massive party. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook, where you can also check out the full list of participants.
