On this episode of the Scenery we see the return of both international jet setter Mateo, and man of mystery John Dexter. Combine the two, and we would never see them again.
This week Ryan caught up with Patrick Lang of Pixelhunt, an Australain gaming magazine and e-zine. Also dropping by the show was Ellen Buttrose, one of the organisers of 5000plus’ Project Tag.
Pixel Hunt is an Australian independent gaming magazine and e-zine. Instead of following the usual gaming magazine structure of game previews and reviews, Pixel Hunt adds a look at the culture surrounding gaming.
Gaming culture has completely changed, as it slowly becomes accepted as an entertaining art form in the same way as a film or television show. People now look back at the evolution of gaming, from the pixelated 8 and 16 bit artwork and animation to the scores that accompanied such games.
Modern gaming culture is an ever expanding beast of its own, with televised multi-player gaming battles to discussions of cinematic story sequences between game play. Ryan Winter spoke with Pixel Hunt print editor Patrick Lang.
Project Tag is a 5000plus initiative to highlight the often unrealised statistics of youth homelessness. 5000plus engaged two Uni SA architecture students, Ella Buttrose and John Pagnozzi, to design an interactive art installation that would engage with the public and highlight the issue at hand. Ella joined the Scenery to discuss the project, currently encasing the entrances of 199 and 200 North Terrace.
This week’s feature track comes from Brisbane solo artist The Trouble With Templeton with the track Impulses. Get your swoon on.
Time to go to work chaps. Night night.
