A MAZE. is an experimental project celebrating the convergence of games and art. DIGAREC is the first academic Digital Games Research Center in Germany. Both work on the strategies and aesthetics of computer games, yet with different approaches and goals. Based on the theoretical models of DIGAREC’s research the installation, A MAZE. Camera, was conceptualized. In my presentation it is used as an example how theory and praxis meet and converge for a better understanding of the artistic value of computer games.
