8 Bit and 1/2

Video Photo Info

8 bit and 1/2 is composed of an iron table covered with discarded Game Boy parts. An overhead projection precisely aimed at the pieces animates and seemingly gives them a new life.
As leisure tools, and prints of so many of our childhood experiences, we have acquired a very intimate relationship with video games. Haunted by their past, Canogar attempts to reveal memories, both personal and collective, that seem trapped within, mementos of a time when these machines had a fully functional live.

Discarded videogame console parts, projector, video player, metal table.
Dimensions: 85 x 100 x 160 cm / 33,4 x 39,3 x 63 in
