Don't stress, the conditions portrayed in Matteo Bittanti & Iocose's 'Game Arthritis' portraits aren't real. Yet. Matteo Bittanti & Iocose teamed together to create this collection of cringe-worthy photographs. The series shows several patients who all suffer from game-induced illnesses, including PlayStation thumb and Wiimote shoulder dislocation. Although these medical terms and conditions have all been imagined, the artists want audiences to question whether they could become a reality.
Matteo Bittanti & Iocose have made this photo series extremely believable. Each Game Arthritis photo is supplemented with supporting evidence of the patient's condition, including x-ray images and quotes from scientists. By making these photos so realistic, the artists are scaring viewers into questioning their technological habits.
Game Arthritis is a series which will definitely shock you out of picking up your PlayStation controller anytime soon.
