When I was a kid I hated riding the bus mainly due to the fact I was one of the last ones off. To me it seemed like such a colossal waste of time. Surely I could have used the time more wisely for doing things like playing video games. One artist from the Netherlands decided to try to make public transportation into a real life video game for those who feel like I do about bus rides.
Art student Daniel Disselkøen who studies at the Royal Academy Of Art came up with a real life video game called “Man-eater” for his graduation project. Daniel drew pictures of hungry fish and posted them as well as instructions and posted them in a public bus. Instructions were to cover one eye and move their field of vision up and down to make the fish appear to “eat” any pedestrians you see out of the window. Disselkøen filmed some of the passengers playing “Man-eater” and decided to share his experiment.
