Technically dazzling 3D dance doc likely to leave viewers dizzy
By Devin D. O’Leary
Mad filmmaker Werner Herzog may have conjured up a whole new genre when he directed his 3D art-house documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams. That film—combining ancient cave art with eye-popping 3D technology—became an award-winning hit. Now, fellow German auteur Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Until the End of the World) has followed suit, creating a 3D documentary about avant garde dance choreographer Pina Bausch.

This Week In Games 7.2.10
By John Bee [ Fri Jul 2 2010 6:57 PM ]
Holy, crap! Ebert cries uncle in the games as art debate. About damn time, dog.
That 3D thing they're pushing into home TVs and with the 3DS? Long term exposure can totally screw up children's eyesight.
This whole making you pay again for the nice version of old games thing is looking pretty good to Sony.
But hey, at least they know what we really want is HD Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
Metro 2033 gets a sequel, AND it's in 3D.
Now I want to see it wade knee deep through a residential neighborhood (not mine)!
Bizarre: A judge games with a defendant he's sentenced in the past, and flees his job when outed.
You'll have to wait a little longer to kick zombie ass with Chuck in Dead Rising 2.

The mad science of Fab Lab ABQ
By Julia Mandeville
Imagine: You’re a legendary archaeologist. You embark upon a dig that quickly becomes the most extraordinary of your career. As you stumble upon one singularly exceptional artifact after another, you leap about (very careful not to break anything), overcome by the remarkable knowledge you’re unearthing. Then you remember that you can’t keep any of it. You’re excavating an important spiritual site, and though you’ve been granted permission to explore, you have to return every found thing to the people who hold the land sacred. You understand—but you’re devastated at the informational, educational and historical records that will never exist. Until you realize that Fab Lab ABQ has a solution, and you resume your joyful leaping.

What Are You Playing This Weekend?
By John Bee [ Fri Apr 9 2010 3:56 PM ]
I'll be playing Heavy Rain this weekend. For those of you not familiar, Heavy Rain is a PS3 game where you investigate a series of child murders via four separate characters, and it provides more of what you'd expect from an interactive fiction than a video game proper. Graphically, it's stunning (though the brought-
I'll also be playing some games from the Kokoromi site. Kokoromi is a collective of Montreal-based experimental game designers and curators who orchestrate games-as-art events. Currently I'm running through the list of submissions to the Gamma 256 event of November 2007 where developers were constrained to making games that fit within a 256x256 pixel window. Some feel a little slapped together, others don't work, but so far at least two are great: Jason Rohrer's Passage, and Jim McGinley's Mondrian Provoked. And if I can find my red/blue 3d glasses anywhere, I'll check out some of the submissions to Gamma 3D as well.
How about you? (Poll after the jump)
