Realtime Art Manifesto

Abstract: Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn are new media artists who have embraced realtime 3D game technology as their artistic medium of choice. Realtime 3D is the most remarkable new creative technology since oil on canvas. It is much too important to be wasted on computer games alone. This manifesto is a call-to-arms for creative people (including, but not limited to, video game designers and fine artists) to embrace this new medium and start realizing its enormous potential. As well as a set of guidelines that express our own ideas and ideals about using the technology:

1. Realtime 3D is a medium for artistic expression 2. Be an author 3. Create a total experience 4. Embed the user in the environment 5. Reject dehumanisation: tell stories 6. Interactivity wants to be free 7. Don�t make modern art 8. Reject conceptualism 9. Embrace technology 10. Develop a punk economy.

Keywords: realtime 3d, computer games, interactive storytelling, game design, artistry, non-linearity. Realtime Art Manifesto by Auriea Harvey & Michaël Samyn. [via]
