After sharing photos from the Savage/Sacred Young Minds showing at the Brooklyn Museum with you last week, we now have an additional look at the arcade installation there from Faile (featured) and their long time collaborator Bast. After previous iterations seen in places like New York, Miami, Scotland, and London, this immersive experience finally makes an appearance in museum form. Consisting of video games, pinball machines, and foosball tables, the entire interactive environment with signatures imagery are designed by the artists down to the actual games. Discuss Faile here.

With the world’s attention on Paris after the tragic events that unfolded today, artists around the world have shown their solidarity with the French people by doing what they do best – making art. Inspired by the phrase “Je Suis Charlie” or “I Am Charlie,” creatives like Hanksy above have shown their support for freedom of expression with “cartoons” of their own.

Duality is generally viewed as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, love and hate and the relationship they have with the other, and that is just one of the many constants we all love about the work of Faile.

Even their signature “1986” referring to that moment of the challenger disaster, reminding the viewer that some moments you quite simply […]
