*Press A* ~ Wonder Wickets, Katana Zero

*Press A* ~ Art Sqool, The Window Box, Apex Legends

Julian Glander ~ Art Sqool Art Sqool is sort of an absurdity device, pushing silly technocratic questions like “can AI replace a human art professor?” by means of simple MS Paint exercises until their fundamental misguidedness is revealed. The music
