My latest in ARTnews.

I’m suuuuper excited about the April issue of ARTnews, which not only features my article on video games and art, but provides me with a cover story that features Elvis. And as someone who got hitched at the Graceland Chapel in Vegas, all I gotta say to that is: HELL. YES.

Further afield:
If you want to see video of Brody Condon’s piece, which is featured on the cover, you can find that on his website right here. If you’re looking for some additional reading, may I highly recommend Tom Bissell’s Extra Lives, a breezily written and poignant introduction to games and game criticism. Online, for thoughtful takes on video games and game culture, definitely check out Ian Bogost’s blog as well as Kill Screen Magazine.

Thanks for reading! And, as always, the story looks even better in print (with lots of sexy graphics) — so buy the mag if you can.

And now, for a little holiday show…

If you are looking for a fine way to walk off all that turkey (or tofurkey), may I highly recommend the Charles LeDray exhibit at the Whitney. It is intense. It’s hilarious. It makes you think about why we fetishize the things we do. Best of all: I’ve got a slide show of it up at Gallerina.
