Didn’t get your chance to sit with Marina Abramović during her The Artist Is Present performance at MoMA? Don’t worry, Copenhagen-based Pippin Barr has given you a second chance in the form of The Artist Is Present, the 8-bit video game. He’s also updated the whole thing so you have to pay $25 to get into MoMA, take about a hard dose of reality. Ouch!

Btw, I’m still waiting in line to sit with the artist. I wonder how long it’ll take.
