Video games in art and fashion
by KOD Staff
In the 70s we were hooked on Pong – the first arcade game to reach mainstream popularity. Ever since, video game imagery has become a huge part of our visual world. Tetris blocks, the Mario brothers and Pac-man have escaped the confines of retro games and can now be found everywhere – from the runways to the galleries. Playful or iconic, video games are at the height of cutting-edge design.
