Codes of Honor

This is a lovely little project that, having grown up on a diet of Streets of Rage, Street Fighter, Doom and Double Dragon, embellished me with a great sense of nostalgia.

Likewise, the arcades in my hometown in the UK all closed down in the early nineties. I used to get a thrill from walking through the doors and hearing the sounds from the machines; the unmistakeable rumbles from Street Fighter 2 and Smash TV, the tune of Outrun, etc.

While I still enjoyed playing my SNES and Megadrive, I still missed the sounds and meeting people at arcades, and being able to challenge others in person to Street Fighter 2, etc.

Thanks for the words, the imagery and the memories!


Tool Time: Cory Arcangel at The Whitney

i went to the exhibition in the photo at the top. it was at the Curve Gallery in the Barbican, London. the large projector screens really helped make a statement. it felt very grand yet also sentimental as it felt like a chronological trip through my childhood!
