Blog #4 Instructions – Accounting for the Artist

Not every object has an artist, but for this week you have to argue that the game you started playing last week does. For this blog assignment you must identify and explain why the individual (or individuals) you have chosen is (or are) the artist (or artists). Furthermore, how does considering the person(s) you’ve identified as the artist influence our understanding of the object. Why is it important?

So, to sum it up: figure out the authorship, then identify an author/artist for the blog, and explain why it matters.
