A severe modification of the MS DOS game Wolfenstein 3D (1992) deconstructs it into a hyper-minimalist black-and-white maze of geometric forms and pixel patterns.
For the month of March, I’ll be guest curating the Echo Park Film Center‘s FB page. The theme for March is MYST:
Identifying with the 1993 computer adventure game MYST, this program of contemporary moving image-based art mazes through aberrant places and mystifying spaces, highlighted by digital simulacra that employ new technology to render regressive aesthetics inspired by the nascency of the early virtual. (AR)
MYST continues every monday of March. Follow along on the Echo Park Film Center’s FB page.
