There is an excellent collection currently on display at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art that will be of interest to anyone studying screen mediation in general and/or video games in particular. Video Works 1996-2008 is a selection of Peter Sarkisian’s work with video, screens, and space that explores the boundaries, roles, and definitions of screen mediation.
In other words: visiting the gallery is a crazy experience, and one that should not be missed. The experience as a whole is somewhat overwhelming and decentering; it might not be a bad idea to plan two short visits instead of one long visit.
Of particular interest is the piece, “Registered Driver,” in which video is projected onto the window of a driver’s-side car door, hilariously (or depressingly) depicting a disinterested commuter making his way through Grand Theft Auto’s traffic. That’s a poor description; it really must be seen.
The whole collection is highly recommended, but don’t delay. The collection is only on display for a few more days (until July 10), so take advantage of it while you can!
