Guillaume Reymond / NOTsoNOISY

Game Over Project

Abstract:
Who does not remember the very first video games PONG, SPACE INVADERS, POLE POSITION, TETRIS, PAC-MAN,…? Well, “GAME OVER” is one of the amazing art projects developed by the French-Swiss artist NOTsoNOISY Guillaume Reymond. It consists of a series of collaborative animation movies which revive some of the very first video games. The pixels are replaced by a group of real human-beings that are moving from seat to seat in a theatre during about 4 to 6 hours. Each “pixel” has its own rules and decides what s/he wants to do for each picture. Once all these pictures are turned into a short animation movie, a giant human-scale video game unfolds “live”.
