Vinyl Atari Cartridges Way Bigger Than Regular Cartridges

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 1, 2009

So let’s say you just happen to have a lot of vinyl lying around. Do you: a) re-upholster your car in a fit of retro fever, b) create some fetish wear, or c) stitch together a few giant Atari cartridges? Clearly, discerning individuals around the world have chosen that last option… or, at least, this one did.

So what does one do with giant Atari cartridges? Who knows, really. Maybe you stuff them with something soft and use them as a pillow or cushion while gaming. Maybe you take your giant Atari cartridge around the world, photographing it at various landmarks. If you’re Snaggs, the creator of this particular project, you show ’em off at a gallery. This is art, people!



I might have paid more attention in those art classes if this kind of thing had been a part of the curriculum, frankly. I mean, really, Renaissance versus vinyl game carts? That’s an easy one. Then again, it’s hard to argue with Judith Slaying Holofernes.
