Art & Art History Lecture: Paolo Pedercini
Paolo Pedercini is a game developer, artist and educator. He teaches digital media production and experimental game design at the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. Since 2003 he has worked under the project name Molleindustria, producing provocative video games as artisanal remedies to the idiocy of mainstream entertainment. Molleindustria's free online games range from satirical business simulations (McDonald's Video game, Oiligarchy) to meditations on labor and alienation (Every day the same dream, Tuboflex), from playable theories (the Free Culture Game, Leaky World) to politically incorrect pseudo-games (Orgasm Simulator, Operation: Pedopriest).
