I seems like if everything is a text, then there is a case for anything to be art. But hasn't that just removed from art the ability to just be art, and instead privileged the argument that something is art instead of the piece in question? That's what Post-Modernism has done, made everything you can argue about art. That is all part of the ethical-legal transition Virilio outlines.And I allow that, in principle, a second coming of Leonardo daVinci could craft a video game....
Just had to reply to that point. I will still argue for the artistic merit in some video games, but I also understand how they as a genre lack artistic credibility.
