What happens if your childhood experience of your environment has been solely through video games? According to artist Shawn Smith, "pixels became a sort of map from which to experience". Hence he introduces old nature into next nature by transforming its imagery into 8-bit sculptures using hundreds of tiny wooden blocks.
In an interview with Wired Smith says "I have been around the depiction of objects and nature on screens all my life and I found myself wondering what these things look like in three dimensions." Peculiar image of the week.
