Case Study: The Art of Game Design

Kara Stone, Media Artist & Game Designer

Learning through Game Design

In this video, media artist and game designer, Kara Stone, explores her digital game-design practices, and signals how we might think about video games differently – as art, as a form of personal expression, and as a means of critically engaging and (re)designing the social worlds we inhabit.

Kara Stone is an artist creating videogames, interactive art crafts. She achieved an MA in Communication and Culture at a joint program at York and Ryerson University, focusing on mental health, affect, feminism, and videogames. Her work has been featured in Vice, Wired, The Atlantic, and NPR. It consists of feminist art with a focus on gendered perspectives of affect – but it’s much more fun than it sounds.
