Art Hawk: Twitch Plays Pokemon

11:30 AM on 02.24.2014 // Jonathan Holmes

All of life's mysteries explained

Against all odds, Art Hawk perceives. Born from talking to women about videogames, he's strived to show the world that Grand Theft Auto, Dead Rising, Gears of War, and Flappy Bird are all important works of art. Some say he's was annoying, others call him a genius. None of that matters. All that he wants is to let you know about the art. He's never going to stop.

His latest query is Twitch Plays Pokemon, a game that has taken the internet by storm. What is it about this exercise in disorganization and delusion that fascinates people so? Artemis gets to the art of the matter like only he can. Visuals by Tobiichi Karlsson
