Rather than applying actual paint to a wall, this paint swatch art installation from Madiha Siraj makes use of thousands of paper paint squares instead. Although these paint swatches are made to be used in the process of helping you pick out a paint color, in this installation, the paint chips become what adorns the walls.

Although the premise of the art installation is the same, different versions like the Oyster EB-124 and Oyster EB-12 feature slightly different ways of breaking up the physical space with barriers. Due to the small, square and colorful makeup of the paint chips, the installation looks as though it has been made up of thousands of pixels rather than pieces of paper.
