Putting the “Art” in Cartridge

Famicase Exhibition

Famicase Exhibition

Famicase Exhibition

Japan’s recent Famicase exhibition brought us back to the good old days when games came on dirty great chunks of processed oil with circuitry inside, a concept which will no doubt utterly boggle the mind of anyone born after 1989. Generally these “cartridges”, as they were known, came with often not-unattractive art printed in full colour on a sticky label adhered to its front- unless you were unlucky enough to own a Sega Master System…

Centered around Nintendo’s Famicom (slightly better known to us eldsters as the NES), the exhibition’s brief involved Japanese artists designing cartridge labels for fictional game concepts they’d come up with. The subsequent label designs were then mounted on plastic shells and displayed as actual games. Check out the full, deliciously retro selection right here.
