BSA Special Feature: Ibie vs Pelucas. Battle on the Streets Using VideoGame Metaphor
A new one from Contorno Urbano, this video is scored/styled as a digital battle with a Ludonarrative
With each player reaching deeper into his quiver for arrows, bolts, and darts, the resulting paintings are deep and lush – compiled with many actions per minute. This isn’t just player versus environment versus player – this is player versus imagination.
Jorge Rodriguez-Gerarda “Perpetual Flow” in Morocco
“My work uses natural materials and technology. I try to do this in a way so that it has very little impact (environmentally),” says artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerarda here in Morrocco where he has created a huge land-art installation called “Perpetual Flow.”
