Giant Tetris Pieces

Artists from the Gaffa Gallery installed a series of falling giant Tetris pieces in an alleyway in Sydney. They write:

There are grand implications of error here that lead to questions, such as who exactly has been playing Giant Tetris? What were they trying to do? Could I have done better? Is the city grid similar to a computer game or different? What brain-space am I in when I’m playing games on my computer? Is it more or less alert than when I’m waiting in line for a sandwich? The work seeks to challenge conceptions of the North end of Sydney’s CBD as an orderly, socially cold grid and beckons viewers to assess their own level of interaction, play and hacking within the city

  1. Cool art. The artist’s writeup is pretentious as all getout though. Good grief was that ever obnoxious.

  2. God, I’m addicted to tetris you are so cruel to show me these big blocks of tempting tetris.

  3. Parker: So thinking past the bass ring and considering other possibilities is pretentious? Hmm, gotta remember that…
