Tate Liverpool uses games to bridge art and science
Tate Liverpool is using videogames alongside its Alice In Wonderland exhibition to help teach children aged 8-12 about developmental neuroscience.
The project, dubbed Wondermind, consists of online games and interactive films which will be playable within the exhibition itself as well as through the Tate Kids website.
The games, which are set in the Alice In Wonderland universe and present players with a series of memory, spatial awareness and language tests, have been designed by Preloaded, the multi-award-winning independent developer of educational, casual and social games.
Tate Kids editor Sharna Jackson said: "The human brain has intrigued and fascinated artists for centuries – and modern neuroscience is a pioneering field, full of fascinating discoveries and developments.
"Wondermind has been designed to deliver this excitement to children, bringing complex concepts to life through art and play. We're very proud of the exhibition and the games; perhaps they will inspire some of tomorrow's brightest artists and scientists."
The exhibition – which also includes interactive videos allowing visitors to have "real conversations" with neuroscientists – runs from November 4 to January 29 at Tate Liverpool. For more, follow the source link below.
