Solitaire.exe brings old-school design to the real world

Digital art meets reality

Solitaire.exe is a pixel-for-pixel physical recreation of the set of cards developed for PC game Solitaire on the Windows 98 operating system.

Designed by American artist Evan Roth, the 500 available decks are based on the original Microsoft Solitaire card faces designed by Leslie Kooy, depicting a pixelated beach scene. Each deck is signed and numbered, and can be purchased online at The Copper Hewitt Shop.

Other works created by Roth are in permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art NYC. His work is described as the application of hacker philosopher to art, visualizing "transient moments in public space, online and in popular culture."
