We’ve all played Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede, but what if those games had been less digital and more of an art installation? Would you still be interested? This arcade machine is called “A Maze,” and is the work of artist Marco Iannicelli.
I used to think hamsters were cool until about 1990 when the field behind our house caught fire and all the field mice fled… right into our house. The little fuzzy bastards apparently liked it there and they would wake me up at all hours of the night doing whatever mice do in the dark.
