Current Exhibit: Curious Cabinets, Summer 2017
CURIOUS CABINETS: ARCADE EXHIBIT LAUNCH!
Curious Cabinets is a free 1-month exhibit devoted to the exploration of video game arcade hardware and public play. A collaboration between the Hand Eye Society, Electric Perfume, and Spritebox Arcade with funding from the Toronto Arts Council., the exhibit will feature seven games created for two custom arcade machines — the One-Button Torontron and the SpriteBox.
The exhibit will kick off with an all-ages launch event which will feature presentations by the game artists about their creative process, a peek inside the technical aspects of both machines, and the chance to interact and play the featured games. Also, remember to bring a small trinket, memento, candy, or other curiosity to activate the SpriteBox: It has been modified to accept any small object (max 2 inches) instead of quarters!
