Video games in the "Applied Design" exhibit at MoMA

Pac-Man, Tetris, Portal and the rest of the Museum of Modern Art's new 14-video-game collection opened as part of the its "Applied Design" exhibit this weekend. As you can see by the pictures, the games are presented on minimalist screens, with controllers on hand for the playable titles.


While many of the games are set up in a way that allows visitors to play through a sample level, others are purely visual. Multiplayer game EVE Online, for example, cobbles together game footage captured across its universe on a single day in December. Nonvideo-game works in the exhibit include Wind Map, an online application that renders the United States' wind data as a moving drawing, and Mine Kafon, a computer-operated landmine detonator inspired by tumbleweeds.
