Pac-Man Gobbles Up Some Light Bulbs

 |  |  |  February 1, 2012


It’s not like this is the first set of Pac-Man inspired lights I’ve seen over the years, but there’s something about the clever use of those old Italian light strings as Pac-pellets that make these ones special in my book.

Pac-Man and his ghostly frenemies were created by artists Benedetto Bufalino and Benedict Deseille at Geneva, Switzerlands’ Festival Arbres et Lumières (“Festival of Trees and Lights”) all the way back in December 2010, but it’s the first time I’ve seen them, and that’s good enough for me. The only thing better would have been to have an occasional larger bulb to represent a power pellet – but I’m being nitpicky.

I can’t imagine that light bulbs are particularly tasty, but it’s not like the pixelated dots and power pellets tasted all that good to begin with. And ghosts. Blech! Need a bottle of Scope (and some cherries) after Blinky for sure.
