The F’ing Water Temple – Legend of Zelda

Final piece for Bottleneck Gallery’s 3NES Show, which premieres Sept 6th, in Brooklyn, NY.

Fun fact: I’d never played all of the way through Ocarina of Time until about two weeks ago. As a child, a) my family didn’t own an N64, and b) when I tried playing it at a friend’s house, my friend would tell me I was ‘doing the puzzle wrong’ or ‘this game’s too hard for you,’ yanked the controller out of my hands, and proceeded to beat the game a second time. I sort of had wrongful disdain against Ocarina of Time as a result. So upon playing it through, all grown-up now, I had everyone and their mom tell me the Water Temple was just godawful and was their least favorite temple.

I FREAKIN LOVED THAT TEMPLE. WHO THE HELL CARES IF YOU HAVE TO KEEP CLANKIN YER IRON BOOTS ON EVERY 2 SECONDS? GIMME THAT OVER LENS OF TRUTHIN’ EVERYTHING.
