Art History: Pixel Art in Real Life

Mon Oct 1, 2012, 5:09 PM
Welcome to the first article of Digital Art History Month!

People around the world are re-inventing pixel art from the digital world into real life. Today, we'll look at a few ways people have made pixel art from every day items.

(Please note that I'm not saying the following ARE pixel art, but only an adaptation. :))

For instance, Zach King on YouTube has created a pixel-styled Super Mario stop-motion using only Sticky Notes.



Wasn't that cool?

The next adaptation brings pixel art into 3D. Lego! We've all played with it at some point in our lives, but believe it or not, it's one of the most common adaptations in pixel art. Check out this LEGO sculpture by Nathan Sawaya.



Almost anything can be used to create pixel art in real life, even shot glasses, as demonstrated by Thomas Hoel!

So look around your house, there's probably something besides your computer that you can create pixel art with!

Thank you for reading and have a great October. :dalove:

I knew of the Mario-video, but am glad I found out about the other two.
That's some amazing creativity right there!

And this is why pixel-art and it's derivatives are so awesome. :la:
