Deluxx Fluxx Arcade

Thanks to our friends at Adapted Studio for sending this our way…

Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade is a collaborative effort between famed street artists Faile & Bast that was shown earlier this year in London at Lazarides Rathbone Place Gallery. The piece seems pretty self-explanatory and since I haven’t seen it in person, I’ll keep my comments to a minimum. To quote from the Adapted website…

We worked with the artists Faile and Bast to translate their visual work and ideas into a set of 40 game-like interactive pieces, which we installed on ten arcade machines. The cabinets themselves used original hardware from 1985-95 that were covered in posters and paint by the artists. We were involved in this project from the stage of game concept, through installation, and created the accompanying website, deluxxfluxx.com, where you can see pictures, play the games online, and download all kinds of goodies.

Word is that they’re headed to NYC to redo the show somewhere on the Lower East Side with new machines and games in the next month or so. We’ll get back to you when we have more details.

Most of these pics are from the main project site and any others are linked back to their original sources. You can see lots more pics here and here and here.

There are quite a few process/installation shots on the site.
