From the artist:
A couple of years ago, I became intrigued by the Atari E.T. story of 1983 stating that millions of unsold copies of the game were supposedly dumped into a landfill in Alamogordo, NM. It was an obscure design on my part, which now suddenly has relevance. On April 26, the legendary cartridges were found!! It was amazingâ€¦.getting on a plane and flying to a landfill to witness the unearthing in person. :)
