guy on a buffalo

so, here i go again, doing another last minute group show contribution.
third time this month! JEEZ!
the show is called thank you for playing:

Thank You for Playing is an exploration of the early videogame aesthetics that inspired a generation. This exhibition of artists examines the socio-technological revolution spurred on by the development of an electronic medium. The showcase features a series of mixed-media works that revisit the iconography of vintage videogames to provide a commentary on pertinent issues in contemporary art and society.
