An art installation at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany as part of a 30th anniversary celebration of Space Invaders is raising lots of eyebrows.

Why?

Because it’s a mod that sets the classic 1978 arcade game against the backdrop of the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, that’s why!

French-American artist Douglas Edric Stanley claims his “30 Years of Space Invaders” exhibit is using the World Trade Center attacks as a metaphor. It’s an interactive large installation, where the players must prevent the attack by shooting the invaders before they decimate the towers.

Stanley sees Space Invaders as “a social tale that can be related to historical tales without losing its poetic power.”

Right. Either that or a demonstration of unbelievably bad taste….
