Japanese artist Hideyuki Sawayanagi creates incredible halftone photographs by drilling hundreds of small holes at variable widths into sheets of aluminum. Or at least that’s the only way I can imagine it. Click on the photos to see the detail, but also squint your eyes or back away from the monitor to see the photos emerge more vividly. A couple more images over at the ex-chamber museum.
