Selections from C o o l T h e o r y (2016) // SNES ROM Corruption  /// Despite it’s fancy sounding name, Realism, at the end of the day, is a set of aesthetic choices. These tendencies change over time and place, but they are inextricably bound to their medium and materials. As an aesthetic choice, Realism privileges what is legible, familiar, and visceral, but it always reflects back on its medium. 
Mass media culture already begun to distort how we perceive the fabric of reality during the post-war era, but Videogames takes it to another level, as simulated virtual environments don’t need a representational attachment to IRL to be understood and treated as real. So here in these Cool Spot game glitches I made years ago, there are two kinds of realisms at play: - hyperrealism - The fact that the red dot on 7-up soda cans were turned into anthropomorphic videogame characters and I, an avid elementary school soda drinker, wanted to buy the game and eventually rented it from Blockbuster. The simulacra becomes real enough to have IRL effects on people. - metarealism - The capturing of the gameplay event itself, as experienced by a community of gamers and viewers. In this case, the event are the glitches instantiated by a corrupted ROM.

A friend of mine came up with the idea while we were playing genshin impact to draw the characters based on screenshots we took in the game, so here's good boi Razor! I hope it looks okay!

Kyu Sugardust, to contrast with the Candace of last week!
She seems an awful lot more sardonic and distant in the sequel compared to the first game, hopefully that’s explained somehow..
