Hacked! Games Re-designed

13 September – 21 December 2019

Gallery open Wednesday to Saturdays 12 – 5pm

How are artists and innovators changing the way we play computer games? From the DIY movement of controller hacks, modz and instructables to artists ingenious creations and Xbox’s own Adaptive Controller, we invite you to experience some of the cutting-edge game-changing devices that offer radically different ways to interact beyond fingers and thumbs.

Play with the latest innovations in adaptive design, from the mighty Microsoft corp’s new accessible controller, to low-fi hacked alternatives and arcade machines and instruments re-invented by artists. This exhibition is co-curated by blogger and gamer Vivek Gohil and it captures a unique moment in time when games designed from alternative all ability perspectives could lead us towards an altogether more immersive future.

Our venue has ramped access, a ground floor wheelchair accessible toilet and a lift that can accommodate most wheelchairs (but not large scooters). The exhibition is primarily on the ground floor with some of the music focused work on the first floor.
