Kill Screen - G1988

18 x 24 – 5 color silkscreen – S/N edition of 125 – This print was commissioned for Venice’s Gallery 1988 “Multiplayer” show in 2012. The term Kill Screen is a level in a an arcade game that stops the player's progress due to a programming error or design oversight. Rather than "ending" in a traditional sense, the game will crash, freeze, or behave so erratically that further play is impossible. I first became aware of the term in the film The King of Kong which documents Steve Wiebe's quest to become the world champion at Donkey Kong. No spoilers here, go Netflix it. The print is dedicated to him.
