Nintendo is a video game brand with greater longevity than other brands like Atari and Sega. The brand as advertised to be family-friendly, and thus mass appealing and mass consumed- so much so that major characters of games are easily recognized and heavily featured throughout popular culture.

Our intention is to challenge the audience’s preconceived notions about video games they have certain associations with, such as the childhood nostalgia and advertisement sentiments sold to them.

UPDATE: Post-Reel Loud Installation – June 1, 2016
