This Was Your Future began as an art piece commissioned by Human Studio for their virtual Computer Love art gallery, created for the University of Sheffield's Festival of the Mind.
The project has since grown, distilling pixels into purer forms for Game Paused's Every Day is Play book (a Kickstarter success story).
For Computer Love, 100s of screen-captures of glitched arcade game boot screens were created, with a curated selection placed into the gallery, each filling an entire wall.
The gallery itself is a virtual recreation of one of the wings in the Tate Modern, built in Unity, explored like an FPS video game. It was featured on the Guardian's website.
The virtual art gallery can be downloaded from here.
It also exists as a demented animated gif tumblr.
The piece was inspired by an animated ident I created in 2003 for the Trampoline film night that used to run in Nottingham's Broadway cinema.
