Evan Roth's installation 'Angry Birds All Levels' explores the repetitiveness and excitement that comes with the highly addictive mobile game.

The installation displays 300 sheets of paper and black ink, which are all lined up in sequential order to show the artists fingerprints as he swipes his way through each level of Angry Birds. The paper used is in the size of the actual smart phone device, which results in a series that displays various smudged fingerprints. Mr. Roth's motivation behind the exhibition was to "comment(s) on the rise of casual gaming, identity and our relationship with mobile devices."

The visually captivating series created by Evan Roth is part of a larger project entitled Multi-Touch Paintings, commissioned by the Science Gallery in Ireland. The purpose of the project is to explore different routine tasks that are frequently done on touchscreen and are transferred onto a more visually accessible medium.
