Artist Shawn Smith builds beautifulsculptures of animals that resemble 8-bit images, using nothing morethan coloured woodblocks.
As Smith explains:
My work investigates the slippery intersection betweenthe digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how weexperience nature through technology. When we see images of nature on TVor on a computer screen, we feel that we are seeing nature but we arereally only seeing patterns of pixelated light.
The above images were kindly provided by Mr. Smith himself.
