Let's Read Art: Guillaume Reymond

Let's Read Art: Guillaume Reymond

I chose this piece because it was just going to be the boys and I reading art this week and I knew they'd enjoy this piece. Below are the interpretations of Andy and Spencer (my sons) and myself.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • i see people in a theater
  • they are moving around the theater
  • the color of their shirts change to animate a video game
  • music is being hummed
  • their acting out classic arcade games!
  • you're right!

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  • me likely!!!
  • oh! that's tetris
  • ...and pac man
  • a lot of people loved these games in the past
  • it's so awesome
  • it's performance art
  • it's stop motion video
  • the sound voice over of the songs is cool
  • love that it's recreating old games
  • I'd love to see them do a contemporary game minecraft; that would be epic!
  • the camera, organization and choreography would be sooo hard
  • getting the group to move accordingly must have been hard

WHY DID THE ARTIST PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER?

  • it doesn't make me think about video games differently
  • to make the world of gaming into a physical and social event
  • make gaming human
  • gaming turned nteractive
  • the patterns in games show up in the patterns in life

These are our interpretations, you may see something different. Oh, and I should mention that when we do this we don't read up about the piece until after we've looked at it.
