Description

A must have for collectors of early gamer memorabilia. If your Dad grew up playing video games then he'll love this piece of found art as a father's day gift.This Atari ET The Extra-Terrestrial Cartridge is displayed like an artifact, framed within a black plastic lab tray resembling a shadow box. Surrounded by silver framed integrated circuits, attached into little boxes of an embossed grid. Shiny round lenses adorn the IC's.The piece's visual interest is heightened by the uniformity and repetition of perfect geometric shapes. It resonates as a piece of tech history and for the childhood memories of hours playing in the early days of gaming.

The golden age of arcade video was an era when av games entered pop culture and became a dominant cultural force.Technology is beautiful.No doubt about it. My work is made from recycled materials and imperfections are part of the aesthetic!These materials are limited and always change. If you see something you like, don't wait they may sell out and most likely never be made again. Finding beauty in unexpected places - I am inspired bythe variety of shapes, colors, materials, textures and patternsfound in outdated technology. I combine these three dimensional formswith alterned imagery in sculptural collage I call Hacker Creations.
