Entertainment has held a position of helping people cope with the everyday drudgeries of life. The Game show, moreover, offers both the value of entertainment and a promise at a chance of making life better. Loosely based on Franz Kafka's The Trial Jophen Stein's latest series The Gamies explores the idea of systems that are in place but not fully understoodt. From the exhilaration of winning to the disappointment of losing The Gaimes is a look into the bipolar effects of game shows as entertainment.

Location: Art Whino Gallery
173 Waterfront St.
National Harbor, MD 20745
