The following information is taken from the advance publicity currently being circulated by the Hub.
‘The theme of Exhibit4 is Play and will examine how video games are increasingly becoming educational and artistic tools. Exhibitors will include the finalists of the Nokia N-Gage Challenge, a talent search to find innovative ideas for mobile games, and Dennis McNulty, who has created music using a Nintendo Gameboy.
Exhibit4 also features exhibitions on the Linux kit for PlayStation 2, which allows PlayStation 2 users to program their machines and create their own games; an interactive game character production booth; and a Website and game detailing the history, culture and future of video games. Game players will also be able to play three new games for the Sony PlayStation 2 at Exhibit4 – Formula One 2003, Jak 2 Renegade, and Eye Toy Play.
Exhibit4 is the latest in a series of exhibitions held in conjunction with Diageo Ireland through the Liberties Learning Initiative that have examined the creative potential of digital technology.’
