PBS recently launched the Idea Channel, a biweekly web series featuring host, Mike Rugnetta that ties popular icons, products and trends to established art movements. The first episode is quirky and informative and just the type of tv content I’d want my child to watch (if I had child).
This episode explores the iconic Nintendo game Super Mario Bros, comparing it to surrealist art. Rugnetta – a composer, programmer and performer, as well as one third of MemeFactory offers a fun, kid-friendly perspective, with lively graphic accompaniment and interesting comparisons.
