I’ve been following this game since it’s development was revealed, almost two years ago, and now after I've played it I can say that Sword & Sworcery is one of the most beautiful creative piece of art I have ever experienced. Mixing the awesome Craig Adams's 8bit visuals with the great soundtrack by Jim Guthrie, it doesn't really feel like a game but more like an experiment, the developers explain it better:
"It’s a mix of laid-back exploration, careful investigation and mysterious musical problem-solving occasionally punctuated by hard-hitting combat encounters. S:S&S EP is an unusual genre-bending effort with an emphasis on sound, music & audiovisual style that has been positioned as ‘a brave experiment in Input Output Cinema’."
Visually, games like S&S EP, Minecraft or Journey prove that less is more and that they are more stunning than most of the photo-realistic console games out there. Unlike many iOS games that are only good for killing a few minutes on your smartphone, Sworcery is a full-scale endeavour that draws the player into another world. Words can't describe how awesome this game is, so if you don't have an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, go borrow one, this is pure art!

Vermeer: Master of Light is a visual pilgrimage in search of what makes a Vermeer a Vermeer. It is a journey of discovery, guiding the viewer through an examination of three of Johannes Vermeer's paintings and exploring the secrets of his technique. Utilizing the potential of x-ray analysis and infrared reflectography as well as the power of computer technology, the program delves beneath the surface of the paintings to unveil fascinating insights into Vermeer's work. This film celebrates one of the most extraordinary painters in the history of art. Narrated by Meryl Streep, with commentary by Arthur Wheelock, curator of northern baroque paintings, National Gallery of Art, and David Bull, conservator.
I totally agree with Scott Burdick's slide presentation "The Banishment of Beauty" that deals with the issues between traditional and "modern" art. I think this representation is an important viewing for anyone who has the urge to create meaningful, beautiful things. If you are an artist, it is very important to watch this great mini-documentary, please find some spare time and then click the links below:
