Here’s a fun fact: Adam Shreckhise, owner and creator of PLAY Parlour and its awesome games is an accomplished artist and sculptor. Before PLAY, Adam had various pieces of work displayed at galleries around the city. One of those, his drawing machine, was especially cool.
PAM (Portrait of the Artist as a Machine) was an installation at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts as part of the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial. It was a roomful of interconnected mechanics, electricity, switches, and color that produced its own works of art. PAM offered viewers a way of questioning the creative process and connection with the final product. If you didn’t get a chance to see it then, check it out on Adam’s website.
On February 16th, PLAY is giving you a real hands-on opportunity to be a part of Adam’s recent work, arcade games. Visit us in another roomful of interconnected mechanics, electricity, switches, and color . . . but with more balls.
