Event Description
The UCLA Arcade Backpack was originally created to infiltrate public space. The cabinet frame is constructed of laser-cut plywood and assembled to house a laptop, arcade-style controls, and an LED marquee powered by a drill battery. The entire cabinet is holstered onto a military-grade pack frame and can be adjusted to fit comfortably on any unsuspecting UCLA Game Lab pack mule. The UCLA Arcade Backpack has been featured in many exhibitions at museums and festivals in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Recent venues include the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; Amber Festival, Istanbul, Turkey; Indiecade, Culver City, California; Hammer Art Museum, Los Angeles; Game Developers Conference, San Francisco; and Vector Game + Art Convergence Festival, Toronto, Canada.
