NAME: Punch A Monet

AUTHOR: Creative lab PARTY New York.

DESCRIPTION: Andrew Shannon, the man who punched a €10-million Claude Monet painting back in June 2012 at the National Gallery of Ireland has recently been sentenced to five years in prison. Good news, you can now recreate his feat thanks to a simple browser-based game.

AMUSEMENT RATE: This should dissuade any other nutters who want to “get back at the State” -as Shannon claimed during his arrest- by damaging a masterpiece from the French impressionist painter. However, one can easily understand the drive that would lead somebody to such an action. Turning a highly valuable item into a worthless pile of materials within seconds must be somewhat exhilarating. If you happen to have this kind of urge, please do not go to the nearest museum. Leave the paintings alone and go instead Punch A Monet where you will be able to virtually punch the painting as much as you want. Bring the fist towards the artwork and press space to hit it hard. Not satisfied quite yet? Do it again, there’s no harm done! Look at the cost of the damages reaching millions within seconds just because of the sole power of your fist. Paintings are safe, your disturbed mind is not but at least you released some pressure, everybody wins!
