Phantasy Arcade
is a unique art exhibition concept born out of quarantine. Featuring a coupling of artist and musicians, each artist created work for an original, non-playable, 1/6th scale arcade cabinet. Musicians simultaneously created original music based on the artists' concepts. The collection is a miniature arcade that evokes nostalgia for things that never were.


On display in the gallery December 12, 2020 - January 3, 2021

ABOUT PHANTASY ARCADE

Born out of quarantine, Phantasy Arcade is an art exhibition of 1/6 scale arcade cabinets (12 inches tall) designed by artists. Made to look real but not actually be playable.
  • Artists are given a template and a chance to create their own Phantasy Arcade game. Games that we wish existed.
  • All cabinets are hand assembled and include a removable battery powered light and mini bluetooth speaker installed inside (optional).
  • The marquee and the monitor areas will be lit to resemble a working arcade machine! 
  • Musicians will be selected to create an original chiptune song for each Phantasy game!
