I found the theme to be failure and frustration because all of the games he hacked were set up to be frustrating for someone or for someone to fail. In cloud scroll he took everything away except for the clouds allowing you to do nothing, but watch the clouds. In gutter ball, all the balls went in the gutter allowing no one to win. I was a little confused to what part of what he did was art. I thought it was funny how he hacked the games, but confused by how hacking a game and changing the colors or game style was art. I liked how Cory could hack into these games and put his own touch on what he wanted these games to do. What I didn't like was the repetition of annoying sounds. I would change the way he set up his video controllers and place them on a wall a little differently to make it look more like art. I love the idea and the theme he is trying to portray.
