Twin brothers, Ad and Droo (aka Brooklyn’s Skewville), opened Playground Tactics last month at White Walls in San Francisco. Curated by Tova Lobatz, Playground Tactics featured 30 new pieces and an installation that “will encompass and connect the Skewville style to the indoor space”.
Skewville used found objects, old gaming equipment and house paint to create the feeling of being in or part of a game. I enjoyed their special Skewville ‘typography’ and playing the “I See Faces” game, but I didn’t feel the “connection” like I did with their previous sneaker work or another, more sensory, in-game experience, David Cronenberg’s eXistenz.
Playground Tactics closed this week, so click through for a bunch of photos I took for your virtual viewing pleasure. For another shot at seeing game-inspired artwork, check out Super Button Mashers opening tomorrow night at OhNo!Doom in Chicago.
