Little Big Planet based on Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle

The impact of performing arts on video games

Brilliant idea! A design engineer from the U.K. who posts to YouTube as fluxlasers has started creating levels of the PS3 game Little Big Planet based on conceptual artist Matthew Barney’s five-part meditation Cremaster Cycle. Barney’s unique vision foregrounds the physical rigors of sport and its erotic undercurrents to explore the limits of the body and sexuality.

Someone with the skill and ambition to translate the Cremaster Cycle into the craft-like world of Little Big Planet is absolutely genius.

Fluxlasers has already tackled Cremaster Sackboy in The Order, Cremaster 1 and Cremaster 4, and plans to create Little Big Planet levels based on the other three films in the cycle.

The levels are being created out of order, in the same way Barney created his cycle. And true to the themes explored by Barney, completing a level will unlock the next in the sequence. At the moment we can simply enjoy the creation by watching the videos.
