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.
From a Marxist critique of capitalism disguised as a management simulator to a send-up of the gun-lobby’s twisted logic set, his work is “wickedly humorous.” 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.”
Pedercini is an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon where he teaches experimental game design and media production courses.
The exhibition is in collaboration with the Generator’s Big Maker Series, co-sponsored by the Division of Communication and Creative Media. An artist talk will be held Thursday January 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Champlain Room and the exhibition will run from January 21 to February 6 in the Champlain Gallery Lounge.
