Pac-Art was created based on the video game Pac-Man (TM & @ 1980 1993 NAMCO LTD) // Pac-Art’s cabinet was built based on the design of the classic Arcade cabinets.
Pac-Art is a gamification of how the struggle for power governs relationships between the beings of our species.
On the one hand, this interactive installation shows a version of Saturn by Goya, as a current reflection of the tacit cannibalism that interweaves human relationships. On the other hand, Pac-Art is a version of the popular video game Pac-Man which transforms both Pac-Man and its characteristic ghosts into artists and its fruits into works of art, while intermittent art pills give Pac-Art the power to eat the threatening ghost-artists. The goal of the game is to accumulate as many points, eating as many ghost-artists, art pills and artworks as possible. Participants play the rules of the game competing against themselves, thus becoming part of the dynamics of an increasingly competitive society.
