These Awesome Arcade Machines Are Art

This feast for the eyes is the Deluxx Fluxx NYC art exhibition, which New Yorkers can visit at 158 Allen Street in Manhattan. I highly recommend local gamers pay it a visit. I shot this video tour during a visit on Thursday.


What you see in the video are real arcade machines, converted into interactive art installations by artists Faile and Bast. The New York show follows an original London exhibition earlier this year.

The New York show runs through May 27 and is open, free of charge, Tuesday-Sunday, 3-11pm (except Sundays, when they close at 9.) All the machines are for sale.

Thank you to Matt Barber for giving Kotaku this video tour when I stopped by a couple of days ago.



The machines are art. The games aren't.
