Michael Johansson - Tetris

Using the eponymous game as a starting point, Swedish artist Michael Johansson's Tetris uses everyday objects to reference a phenomenon brought on by playing the puzzle game for too long. Commonly known as Tetris Syndrome, avid players report seeing Tetris blocks in objects all around them. Blurring the limits between 'real space' and 'game space', Johansson's piece, constructed from found objects, articulates a shared and puzzling trick this computer game plays on our minds.
