Bellevue’s Alex Myers featured at Rhizome.org
Artgame video, interview highlighted
Alex Myers, Program Director for Bellevue University’s Bachelor of Science in Game Studies, is currently featured on Rhizome.org, a website dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology.
Myers’ video of an artgame he created, Writing Things We Can No Longer Read, is featured on the website along with an interview that touches on his thoughts on the disparate elements that come together to make the video.
“I’ve always been interested in how things are built — from computers to houses to rocks to software,” Myers tells interviewer Daniel Rourke. “Stripping these things down to their elements shows you that no matter how hard you try, nothing you make will ever be perfect. There are always flaws and the evidence of failure to be found, no matter how small. I relish these failures.”
The interview goes on to discuss Myers role as a professor and authority figure and the rebellion against authority and constraints inherent in most art.
“When teaching I try to break down the relationship of authority as much as possible,” Myers says. “I prefer to think of myself as a mentor, or guide, to the students — helping them find the right path for themselves. Doing this from within a traditional pedagogical structure is difficult, but worthwhile. Or so I tell myself.”
