Back in the days of BBS, when ANSI art was common, seeing these kind of creations was not unusual. This blast from the past, titled Blocktronics ACiD Trip was created by 22 artists and was the first place winner of the ANSI/ASCII compo at Demosplash 2013. Above, a very small portion of the intricate piece.
First place winner of the ANSI/ASCII compo at Demosplash 2013, held at Carnegie Mellon University, October 4-5, 2013. The ANSI received the highest honor possible, a perfect score.
This ANSI was created by 22 artists from 6 different countries. At 3,266 lines long, this is far and away the longest ANSI scroller ever created.
