bowling video games as art.
i first saw Cory Arcangel's work at the 2004 Whitney Biennial. Super Mario Clouds was the piece and it instantly sucked me in with it’s iconic, deconstructed, 2-D graphics from my gaming youth. in his current show Beat the Champ at the Barbican Gallery, Cory connects our ever-evolving aesthetic standards through 14 bowling video games. Josh Spero from TheArtsDesk reviews here.
update: great Q&A with Cory including more pictures and information about Beat the Champ from Creators Project Blog.
