Who’s Up For A Game?

I love a bit of quirky artwork, and this sure is one of them.
During the refurbishment at Manchester Town Hall and Central Library both these grand buildings have been covered up in scaffolding and netting to hide the ongoing work, which makes the buildings look rather unsightly. To help solve this, recently some artwork has been erected on one side of the building. It is made out of road barriers, traffic cones and other construction equipment and made to look like the classic arcade game Space Invaders.
The creation is by street artist Filthy Lurker as part of the ‘Make with a Red Stripe’ art project. It really does grab the attention of the passerbys, and even better it is fully interactive so you can actually play a game of Space Invaders on the big scale.
Now then let’s get a game going shall we? Click the images to enlarge them.
If you are in Manchester get yourself down to Albert Square and play a game, it really is worth it. The artwork is only planned to be there till the end of April.
I hope you enjoy the photo, feel free to leave comments, till next time
