London’s Tate Museum has brought three of their most famous work into the blocky world of popular video game Minecraft.
As GOOD Magazine explains, “Called ‘Tate Worlds,’ the project is the brainchild of a group of Minecraft prodigies known as ‘The Common People,’ who repurpose works from their digital archives and transport them into Minecraft’s online universe. Three customized, fixed maps are available to download on Tate’s website, and feature virtual, explorable versions of André Derain’s ‘The Pool of London‘ (1906), Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson’s ‘The Soul of the Soulless City (‘New York – an Abstraction’)‘ (1920), and Peter Blake’s ‘The Toy Shop‘ (1962). Five other Minecraft worlds are planned for 2015, and will include immersive works by John Singer Sargent, Cornelia Parker, and John Martin.”
