Faile and Bäst Permanently Install the Famed “Deluxe Fluxx” Arcade at The Belt in Detroit

August 10, 2018

After traveling their immersive, sensational “Deluxe Fluxx” arcade project for almost 8 years or so, Brooklyn artists Faile and Bäst will be permanently installing the piece (with the help of Library Street Collective) at the Belt in Detroit. The Belt is an alleyway behind LSC's space in downtown Detroit. As you may know from the Brooklyn Museum or even Miami, Deluxe Fluxx is a blacklight, glow-in-the-dark arcade featuring games and design by Faile and collage works from Bäst.

The installation opened this past weekend in Detroit, and as the Detroit Free Press noted, "the aesthetic of Deluxx Fluxx is a nostalgic nod to childhood basement hangouts and the design styles of punk, graffiti and arcade culture that have influenced the work of Faile over the past 20 years."⠀
