Hey there, ok so first take a minute to play this game, it’s a vintage (1979) game called Lunar Lander. Seriously it’s challenging and heaps of fun. So now that you’ve played it you may see why I love old school videos games. Since I also love electronics and art I was pretty ecstatic when I found an project combining all three.
Lunar Trails is an art installation that takes the lunar lander game and draws where people have flown on a piece of paper. Once you have done this multiple time you end up with something looking like this:
Telemetry information of each flight is taken from the computer the game is played on then fed into a custom made string plotting machine. You can find out more about the project here, visit their flickr set here, or watch the process at work below.
