Cory Arcangel: I Shot Andy Warhol

Cory Arcangel: I Shot Andy Warhol (2002, Reprogrammed Nintendo Entertainment System videogame cartridge, Nintendo Entertainment System, Light gun). "...Cory Arcangel is one of a group of artists who work within the strict limitations and visual styles imposed by early digital technologies and media. For I Shot Andy Warhol, Arcangel reprogrammed a 1980s Nintendo videogame, Hogan's Alley, and populated the game with mass-culture icons. The artist chose the iconic personalities based on their ability to be readily recognizable even at the extremely small pixel size in which they are rendered." From the new UbuWeb Blog.
