Gordon van Dyke
founder at Raw Fury (Stockholm)
Gordon van Dyke began his road into the Games Industry in 2002 by modding for “Battlefield 1942”, “Vietnam”, and “2”. In 2005 he join EA as a QA Tester for the “Battlefield” 2 modding tools. From there he was quickly hired by DICE to work on “Battlefield 2142” and asked to lead the games development after launch. In 2010 he left DICE to explore other opportunities in the games industry that all ended up preparing him for Raw Fury which he co-founded with Jonas Antonsson and David Martinez in 2015 with a goal to change the relationship of Developer and Publisher. Gordon wears many hats within Raw Fury, but his primary role in this endeavor was to build a healthy production pipeline that ensured the developers lead the creative and created the experience they set out to make. Raw Fury now proudly had two games nominated for IGF awards 2017, with one of them (“GoNNER”) taking home the prize of “Excellence in Audio”.

Exhibition at EIKON Schaufenster
Venue: EIKON Schaufenster
The Austrian Institute for Photography and Media Art has been publishing Edition EIKON since 1995, which comprise limited editions of signed and numbered original photographs by renowned and emerging artists. The aim of this initiative is to offer quality works of art at affordable prices, and to thereby familiarize more art lovers—particularly young generations—with photography and to encourage them to collect. By carefully selecting the artists and limiting the print runs to 30 copies on average, Edition EIKON creates a solid investment base and ensures a long-term increase in the value of these works.
The exhibition presents selected artistic positions of the Edition’s portfolio and shows a curated cross-section of the past 20 years of Edition EIKON.
