Sometimes we just don't understand art.
Iam8bit Entertainment System – the exhibit – hosts a ton of work from prominent artists around the globe, including the ones whose installments are shown in the gallery below: Olly Moss, Dadu Shin, DKNG Studios, Hine Mizushima, JC Richard, Jophen Stein, Mark Englert and Steve Courtney.
The show will include a treat for DuckTales: Remastered fans, with a 10 foot x 10 foot recreation of Uncle Scrooge McDuck's money bin, complete with giant gold coins and gems, and the Green Cheese of Longevity. It's like a ball pit for kids that's really for adults. Now that we understand.
The elegant console was designed and hand assembled by LA-based artist, Travis Chen. Full hardware specs will be revealed at the exhibition, and those interested in ordering the iam8bit Entertainment System can do so in-person (or will soon be available for order online at iam8bit.com).
Please spread the word about the show: promote it, tweet about it, attend it, see featured work from more than 80 artists and meet the iam8bit team and artists like Jose Emroca Flores and Jude Buffum.
