unnamedY2BC7ZKXItalian-born artist-activist Paolo Pedercini creates art-videogames that confront some of the most difficult and controversial issues of our times.

This exhibition includes five games produced by Pedercini under his project name, Molleindustria, and features the debut of Nova Alea, a new sim-city inspired commentary on urban planning.

Pedercini explores alternative game forms including the experimental narrative/game Unmanned, an examination of the morally ambiguous life of drone pilots in the war on terror, and the text-adventure game Ergon/Logos.

The exhibition is in collaboration with the Generator’s Big Maker Series. An artist talk will be held Thursday January 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Champlain Room.
