Hugh Davies

Hugh Davies is an artist, curator and researcher of games and play. Of Welsh (Cymry) and Scottish descent, Davies was born in Larrakia Country, raised on Kaurna lands, and currently resides in the Kulin Nations in the south-east of Australia. Davies’s creative practice explores histories of screens and other media devices, as well as traditions of play in the Asia Pacific Region. In the past decade, he has drawn particular focus on China and Japan. With a background in fine art, Davies approaches games as sculptural spaces that are shaped by playful interactions across social, cultural, material and spiritual dimensions.

Awarded a PhD in Art, Design and Architecture from Monash University in 2014, Hugh’s studies in game cultures have been supported with fellowships from Tokyo Art and Space, M+ and the Design Trust Hong Kong. Davies is currently a research fellow at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia, where he has co-authored two books on digital games.
