Ever played Solitaire on an old Microsoft Windows OS? It’s a life transforming experience. The mental strain involved usually leads to a powerful addiction for the game that can only be checked by a few wins. Oh yes, the wins. If you’ve never won on Windows solitaire, you’ve never beheld the flood of cards leaping out the screen.
Now a group of artists have created a very impressive sculpture commemorating those glorious wins, cards leaping out and all. The difference this time around is being a sculpture, the effect is mesmerizing for its 3D depth.
Of course, you might be asking how they built this solitaire tribute. It was actually a big print job where several hundreds, even thousands, of cards were printed and arranged to look like the ‘real thing’ on Windows.
The end result is a realistic depiction of a solitaire win even if the flod of cards obscures the small window from whence they came.
