The medium is the message

Or in this case, the message is the branding. Another confirmation of the fact that the best ideas are the simplest. Case in point: a milk carton that wears its nutritional facts as its branding. Aka, infographic packaging.

Videogaming hurts

May 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

And I am not talking about good-old wii injuries. I am talking about chronic, painful, disfiguring afflictions. I am talking about Game Arthritis. About a hidden epidemic that the gaming industry wants to keep secret.

Created by Italian artist Matteo Bittanti and mischievous art collective IOCOSE, Game Arthritis is an online art installation, a powerful commentary on the demonization of video gaming.

I really don’t know what I like the most about this project: the concept in itself (genius), the photos (clinically delicious) or the accompanying text (hilarious).  Read for yourself: “The conformity of interfaces produces deformity. It’s a fact. Call it “the reality of the virtual”. Prolonged vicarious aggression lead to permanent physical disfiguration. […] The authorities have dismissed this hidden epidemic as “mass hysteria”. But according to some scientists – who speak under condition of anonymity fearing ostracization – these undiagnosed disorders are the psychopathology of ludic societies”
