ok!

I think I know what I'm gonna be working on this term for painting. I want to look closer into game in art, society, and politics. I think it's gonna be difficult, but I'm gonna try to find ways in which games makes us ask questions about what we experience and how they influence our way of thinking. Right off the top of my head, is the Metal Gear Solid series. Absolutely brilliant saga born from the mind of Hideo Kojima. It has ideals, politics, and consequences to name a few. I hope I can create some interesting art. I hope to bring the gaming realm into a different, more intelligent perspective.

Yeah, that's right.
