game over at Thorildsplan


The subway is long. Art is longer.

Artist Lars Arrhenius explores familiar pixel shapes from early days of computer graphics. Does this bring back any memories? See more!

At one tile for one pixel I really can't see the 'art' part of the great Lars Arrhenius...
Love the work and its effect, though!

Luis Gomez said...

Beautiful. Great shot and funny!

Jag ser lappteknik av enklaste slag . :-)

Art has made such a difference here. When I grew up, this station used to be dreadfully boring.

VP: Do check out the link for more of the 'art' part...

Luis Gomez: Also, notice the litter! Over the years, some have commented that our stations are so incredibly clean.

Lena Johansson: Aha, en intressant spaning. Du menar att man kan se tillvaron som en form av slöjd och pyssel? :)

Good to have you all with us today.

Is that Inky or Binky?

Jacob said...

Well, I like it and yes, it sure does remind me of my early days on the computer...pixels by the ones and twos!

Per!
Jag spanar efter mönster - var som helst.
Mosaikgolv, tegelstenar, kakel mm.
Mycket kan inspirera till textila mönster.

somehow reminds me of an old comp. game, cute art though!

Per Stromsjo said...

Believe it or not, I was never into computer games. Not then, not ever.

Halcyon: What's your guess?

Jacob: Maybe today's graphics will be regarded with similar pity, someday by someone? A strange thought.

Lena Johansson: En mönstergill medborgare! :)

arabesque: Anything to brighten a station in a dull, boring environment.

Thanks everyone.

Memories indeed!

Per Stromsjo said...

Not unlike computer games, once upon a time the subway was also associated with modern times and progress.

Thanks, Tinsie.
