Here’s a bit of amazing from artist Pippin Barr: Let’s Play Ancient Greek Punishment. You are the Greek god Prometheus and you’ve been bad, so press ghghghgh real quick to “writhe in pain and dislodge the eagle!”
The excruciating temporal stretch we’ve experienced with Barr’s 8-Bit Marina Abramović MoMA Adventure works here too, as Zeno, eternally halfway there and other mythical misadventures. We don’t want to spoil the rest of the fun, but this here’s a gem. Not since 8Bit Art History game mash-ups have I clapped out loud while grunting ah-HAA-ha at something of this sort.
