Tim Roseborough
No One Dies In A Make-Believe War

March 31, 2009 – April 30, 2009

Opening Reception:
March 25, 2009, 5 pm - 8 pm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Digital artist Tim Roseborough explores how video games de-emphasize violent death in his new exhibition, "No One Dies in a Make-Believe War," a series of prints and video at Scenius Gallery.

Roseborough was inspired by classical "agonal" sculpture — which pertains to death and the dying — and contemporary images of war casualties for his print and video series, which imagines a video game that depicts soldiers with mortal wounds. The exhibition is mounted as a response to the concurrent Game Developers' Conference at the Moscone Convention Center.

"Both video games and mass-mediated images of recent wars minimize the reality of death. This series highlights the real consequence of violence that is often ignored in video games and de-emphasized by the media," says Mr. Roseborough.

"No One Dies in a Make-Believe War" is on display from March 31 to April 30, 2009. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, March 25, 2009, 5 pm to 8 pm. Admission is Free. Scenius is located at 3150 18th Street, #104, San Francisco, CA 94110. Call (415) 420-2509 or visit www.scenius.com for more information.
