Hi Matteo, thank you for reminding me Myfanwy's work. I think this is a great find. Until now I did not notice that she erased Mario's environment 2 years prior to Cory Arcangel. "mario battle no.1" may be described as a kind of predecessor to Arcangel's "Clouds" in my opinion.

I cannot figure out which Rom-version she used, though. If you look closely you will notice that she did not perform her hacking on the original Rom-version of Super Mario Bros. – the graphics look a lot more like Super Mario Bros. 3. But it is not this game either. The titlescreen says "Super Mario Brothers DX" which I am not familiar with...

Any ideas?
