The hottest trend in the art world today appears to be the emulation of video games. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is displaying a 1997 work by artist Miltos Manetas in which Tomb Raider's curvey heroine Laura Croft dies in a number of gruesome ways. Phoenix-based artist John Haddock has likewise jumped on the latest pop-art bandwagon by making historical events look like scenarios from Maxis' popular Sim games. Haddock's works include the Sim-style image of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination at the Lorraine Motel.
