+playengines+ MelbourneDAC exhibition
Melbourne Digital Arts and Culture Conference 2003 is inviting
artists working in the areas of computer games, interactive film and
streaming media to submit projects for +playengines+ a juried
exhibition exploring innovative creative work in the fields of
computer games, interactive hypermedia, interactive fiction and
nonfiction, and streaming media arts.
Artistic works selected for inclusion in the conference exhibition
will be presented to an international audience of peers, critics,
producers, academics, local industry partners and the broader public.
+playengines+ will be staged in Melbourne, Australia in May 2003.
