Expanded Realities—A Conversation With Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Patrick Moran

Those unable to visit the Virtual Realms: Videogames Transformed exhibition in person can still benefit from the expertise of the creators and curators involved via a series of talks streamed to and archived on YouTube.

The debut conversation features Enhance’s Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Barbican Centre curator Patrick Moran as they give an overview of the works included in the exhibition, the background and inspirations of the creators involved, and discuss the potential of videogames as a contemporary artistic medium.

The program’s Q&A also tackles the evolution of videogames from a black and white medium to today’s visual experiences, AI’s potential future in creating synesthetic experiences, the backstory of the project, and more.
