Bits by Shawn Smith
Have a look at this pixelated sculptures by Austin-based artist Shawn Smith. Smith’s sculptures represent pixilated animals and objects of nature. He creates three-dimensional sculptural representations of two-dimensional images he finds online. As material Smith uses small wooden blocks made of plywood or MDF, which he before dyed by hand. Fantastic!
Smith about his work:
My work investigates the slippery intersection between the digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how we experience nature through technology. When we see images of nature on TV or on a computer screen, we feel that we are seeing nature but we are really only seeing patterns of pixilated light.
