A Mini-Arcade, Museum, and Dock for Mice #ArtTuesday
When the last of New York City’s true video arcades closed, it was a sad day. But if you’re a mouse, and the traveling collective AnonyMouse comes to your town, they might leave a mouse-sized video arcade behind. Here’s more from COLOSSAL:
The traveling collective known as AnonyMouse squeaked through Malmö’s bustling streets the last few weeks installing the latest additions to its tiniest cultural scene. After working in cities across Europe, the unidentified group visited the Swedish coast to wedge a miniature art museum, arcade, and shipping dock just big enough for a few mice into the long-established architecture. Built at street level, each minuscule creation is an elaborate and witty rendition of its human-sized counterpart: games like “Feline Fighter 2″ and “Cheese Invaders” are packed into the glowing arcade, while small boats, a cafe, and an ominous flag printed with a mouse and crossbones appear at the inland port.
