Promt: Piece of Art

Prompt: Choose a piece of art that is meaningful to you, and talk about it.

The piece of art I chose is the 2002/2003 Nintendo GameCube game The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker. I am a huge advocate for video games as a new form of art featuring an interactive experience, and this was a game that made me feel very awestruck and full of childlike wonder. I've talked about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time other places in my portfolio, and this is part of the same series. It was technically my introduction to the series. Imagine you're a child, not even 10 years old, and you get this game that lets you explore an ENTIRE sea. That's Wind Waker for me. The cel shaded graphics, the masterful music, and the vast blue sea that makes up its world, all these contribute to the experience that makes up its art. I think everyone should give games a shot with a lens that they are art, because they have inspired me from such a young age, and Wind Waker was one of the first for me.
