Long-Exposure Photography of 80s Arcade Games

New York City artist Rosemarie Fiore has many experimental projects, such as using an amusement park ride as a giant spirograph. Using a long exposure photography technique she has captured movement patterns in several arcade games:

These photographs are long exposures taken while playing video war games of the 80’s created by Atari, Centuri and Taito. The photographs were shot from video game screens while I played the games. By recording each second of an entire game on one frame of film, I captured complex patterns not normally seen by the eye.

The patterns are quite striking. It reminds me of the kind of “ordered chaos” you find in fractal patterns.
