Abstract

This article examines distinctions and similarities between computer games and interactive art. The text proposes that these two media share certain aesthetic features, but computer games and interactive art are primarily different because of extrinsic aesthetic features that are associated with the art world. This perspective is primarily based on George Dickie’s Institutional Theory of Art, which proposes that the classification for something to be art is decided by the prominent institutions of the art world rather than specific intrinsic aesthetic features within the object being classified.
