Designing Worlds focuses on the work being done by emerging video game designers and artists today as a means of tackling reality. With topics ranging from tyrannical governments to the end of romantic entanglement, video game designers have been using their ability to create whole worlds to work through and focus on issues they face in the physical realm. Gamifying these often heavy experiences brings catharsis to the players who experience them. The realm of video games is one in which the designed realities allow for alternative outcomes and aesthetic modification.
Like video games, this exhibit is not experienced in physical space, it exists as a digital extension of the A+D website to be accessed by the general public at any time. Designing Worlds features the works of emerging video game artists in an interactive virtual space similar to that of a video game.
