Pac Man Art IllusionsConsider this post more of an unusual art installation, than true optical illusion. Well, this Pac-man skull you see on the right was created by artist Le Gentil Garçon titled “PacMan’s skeleton”. There are few more interesting photos inside this post, and I’m sure you would’ve guessed what they represent, even if I didn’t explain before. I like references to eighties presented in this unusual form. I don’t have much more to say, really.

Just to share with you that I passed really important exam today, so please excuse me for having lack of inspiration writing this post. I’m all drained up from learning all those synchronous and asynchronous digital automates for the exam. Sounds scary, agree? Wasn’t much of an exam, but I had to stay up all night to get all that fit in my head.

    I like the plate the best, that’s typically what I do with my food as well – especially in nice resturants.

  29. Homfrog says:

    That Pacman skeleton (the first one) is wicked cool. I like the other, but the first and the last stick out. The food one is funneh too. CHICKEN GHOST!

    So how many teeth does Pacman have?

  30. Anonymous says:

    by the look of those teeth, pac-man is an omnivore – I would never have guesssed that.

  51. wakkadoo says:

    Interesting art=/ With a skeleton like that I would like to see how pac-man would look in the real world because i never exactly knew him as to having teeth.

    The food art isn’t as interesting as the skeleton as it can be done by any 4 yr old that has ever seen pac-man on a cartoon or arcade system.

    Pac man never had teeth, so this skull is not a good representation or pacman. thats not cool at all. Whats with the food on the plate? Is that a chicken nugget or fish?
