“We grew up going to old arcades,” Patrick Miller of Brooklyn-based art duo Faile tells ANIMAL at their studio in Greenpoint. For their upcoming collaboration with Bast — a pop-up Deluxx Fluxx in Miami (Dec 3-7), the artists gutted, re-loaded and transformed vintage arcade games and pinball machines into a playable, sound-based and sculptural works of art. From Faile tokens to the reworked, art-covered casings to the reprogrammed and specially created games inside, it’s the ultimate tribute to Faile’s childhood. They’re neon, psychedelic and partially influenced by the woodblock-style Faile’s known for. Who wants to shoot down some condominium buildings?
