I'm really happy to announce that IOCOSE and I are featured in the exhibition Homo Ludens: Videogames to understand the present opening tomorrow in Madrid, Spain, with our project Game Arthritis (2011).
Curated by Luca Carrubba, this ambitious exhibition invite viewers to take an anthropological journey through the playful dimension of life as expressed by digital play, a cultural, aesthetic and artistic phenomenon that occupies an increasing crucial space within contemporary culture. Homo Ludens brings together culture and technology, industry and art, featuring artworks by several international artists, including current and former faculty of the Master of Arts in Game Design at IULM University - not to mention several guest speakers.

Brasilero, Daniel Canogar, Robbie Cooper, Jake Elliott, Bruno Federico, Auriea Harvey nd Michaël Samyn (GAME ART), Roc Herms, Agustina Isidori, David Jaumandreu, Ge Jin, Tamas Kemenczy (GAME ART) and Ben Babbitt, Josep Lago, Jorge Paris, Nadège Mazars, MesquitaFMS, Hamilton Mestizo, Juan Naharro Gimenez, Roman Pilipey, Everest Pipkin, David Ramos, Linnea Rheborg, Mario von Rickenbach and Christian Etter, Pietro Righi Riva, Monica Rikić, Skawennati, Octavi Serra, Bill Viola and USC Game Innovation Lab, and Robert Yang.
