Atari

“The games represent the origins of digital and virtual realities, worlds where the people who play the games are the heroes and protagonists in the adventures,” writes artist Hollis Brown Thornton.  “The collection of games is a tribute to these digital origins, as well as a tribute to the excellent artwork on these worn out cartridges. Some games show their long lives well, with torn labels and faded inks, while one even has the name of the past owner scrawled on the cover.”

You can pick up an 8″x10″ print for a measly $20.  It was created for Jen Beckman’s 20×200 project.  For the record, Pitfall, is probably the greatest achievement in video game creation history.  Just throwin’ that out there.  If you don’t like it you can always send it back with your own thought.
