Entertaiment in Action

Entertaiment is the broad category of audience-centered commercial culture that keeps people amused, engaged, and diverted. It can be as simple as a meal adapted for two; as complicated as a performance geared to thousands; or as subtle as an idea designed to provoke thought. It is an evolving and adaptable medium, with seemingly infinite possibilities for creative remix. Click the buttons below to see examples of entertainment in action.
