Behold the giant pixel “a”

It had to happen, I sliced my finger open working on this piece. I’ve been cutting out squares of foam core with a scalpel for two days, so it’s understandable.

The idea of this piece was to make a giant letter pixelate as if it was fading away. I have to admit, it’s my favourite piece so far, and these photos don’t really do it justice. The black pixels in the middle are stacked three layers high, which is why I sliced my finger—have you ever tried trimming three layers of foam core at once? They get lower as they fade out towards the edges. It was a lot of fun assembling the many hundreds of 10cm squares and overall, the piece measures two metres high by two metres wide and there are 50 different shades of grey and one shade of red (just in case you were wondering). I made a little dodgy little stop motion video so you can see how the piece was assembled.
