Glass Pixel Cell Rabbit by Kohei Nawa

September 25, 2011

Japanese artist Kohei Nawa (previously) just unveiled his latest creation, a small rabbit taxidermy covered in hundreds of translucent glass beads. Nawa refers to this sculpture series as pixel cell animals, and explains that “by covering the surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by ‘a husk of light’, and the new vision ‘the cell of an image’ is shown.” This appears to be his first new pixel cell animal in nearly two years.

New to me, Sarah Garzoni altered the visual patterns of butterflies using an ink jet printer in this series called Mimesis. Her shark tooth corset is also pretty incredible if not a bit frightening.
