Artist: Mel Chin

I just caught the last few minutes of the PBS show Art:21
I didn't get to see much but I liked the bit's I saw of the artist Mel Chin.
I was especially interested to see his attempts to integrate tribal cultures with videogame culture.
He made the comparison that while tribal cultures are dying out - video game culture is growing, even eclipsing movie culture.

He had created a videogame that used imagery from traditional nomadic or tribal art.
