The World According to Tetris

by Paul Strauss

Some of us are such video game addicts that we sometimes imagine the world as a sort of video game, IRL. That’s exactly what it looks like the artist behind this poster was thinking when he created this Tetris world map.

In this world map by artist Stephen Gowland of KIACO, continents and islands have been replaced with precisely interlocked Tetris bricks. What I love about this design is that they really are the proper shapes and colors from an actual game of Tetris.

I wonder how much work it took to figure out exactly which shapes to use for each part of the geography. I can’t imagine it was an easy task.

The A3-size (~16″ x 12″) print of the Tetris world map sells for £10 (~$15 USD), while the A2-size (~23″ x 16″) version sells for £14 (~$22 USD). The artist says he can also print it in A1-size (~33″ x 24″), but you’ll want to check with him for pricing.

Only one problem I can see with this design… Shouldn’t the countries start vanishing as complete lines of bricks are stacked up to form them?
