Pretty Pixelation

Pixels are no longer exclusively a photography faux-pas

Implications - Once considered exclusively a photography faux-pas, pixelation has now lent itself to the art and design world. Innovators are drawing inspiration from computerized images in order to create imperfect-looking products in the realm of furniture, films, eye wear, gadgets and more. Collage-esque pixelated styles coincide with a consumer desire for imperfection and a DIY ethos.
