Blips: The Game Designer is Present

Author: Pippin Barr
Have you played Pippin Barr's The Artist is Present? It's an adventure game centered around a performance/installation of the same name by Marina Abramovic at the Museum of Modern Art. In the game you can experience the artwork in simulated form with your character sitting across the table from the artist herself, staring at one another. Of course you have to play the game during museum hours, or else you won't be able to enter the building!
The Artist is Present (the game) was made a couple years ago, but just recently Marina Abramovic actually got in touch with Barr, said she had played the game, and wanted him to be a part of a new project. Details are slim for the time being, but it sounds like a cool collaboration that is as crazy as it is awesome. Can't wait to see what comes out of this.
