INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Game as Art

Leave a comment

No matter how old I get, I still love playing the Sims on my computer. I see the Sims as art because of how the game makes me reflect on my own life and desires and inner psyche. I find it very calming to have complete control over the lives of my Sims, when I often feel as though I have no control over my own life. Because the game prods these reflections, I consider the Sims to be art.
