On Saturday June 15th 2019, 1 pm. Atari Women will be presented at Seattle retro gaming Expo, and you are welcome to join us – at downtown Seattle. If you have attended the event, then please tell us what you think and get a Atari Women token and Sticker!
AtariWomen was presented at the ‘Software Developer Diversity and Inclusion’ (SDDI) workshop organized by Emerson Murphy-Hill (Google) and Margaret-Anne Storey (University of Victoria) at Google in San Francisco, June 4th-June 6th 2019.
The Atari Women 8-bit Heroine Costume, a project created by HCDE students in the Atari Women research group, will be on exhibit at Hypnotica 2019: a DXARTS technological wearables fashion show. The Atari Women 8-bit Heroine Costume was among the critical design artifacts created in a Winter 2019 HCDE Directed Research Group, co-led by visiting Professor Pernille Bjørn and Assistant Professor Daniela Rosner. Students in the class used collaborative design processes to develop interactive artifacts that highlight the stories of Atari women, or the women who made crucial engineering contributions to early video games. Students Kellie Dunn, Carina Dempsey, and Melody Xu chose the language of cosplay to draw people into the story of Atari women – read more in the AtariWomen gallery.
Atari Women is a research project and we would very much like to hear what you think – please follow this link to answer a few questions for our research Thank you!
AtariWomen research served as the underlying design challenge, when 18 students from University of Washington participated in a Spring break makerspace directed research group. The results includes the AtariWomen artefacts which will be displayed at Living Computers on May 16th 2013 in Seattle.
