About the Speaker
Game designer and scholar Naomi Clark is Assistant Arts Professor at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Game Center. Clark's career of designing and producing games originated while creating early online games in the 1990s. As an editor for the online magazine Word, she co-designed one of the web's first multiplayer games, Sissyfight 2000. She then went on to produce software toys and online games for LEGO®. Clark has worked as a game designer, producer, and creative director at multiple New York studios. Her writing about games can be found in collections such as Videogames for Humans and in the co-authored textbook A Game Design Vocabulary. Clark's 2014 cooperative card game Consentacle, which explores the complex issues of sex and consent, as well as her keynote address at the 2014 Queerness and Games Conference, are just two examples that highlight her ongoing contributions to critical discourse in the arts by challenging and discussing issues of gender, equality, and taste in the gaming industry.
