The Kohei Nawa PixCell art series is beautifully breathtaking. Centered on bubbling bead sculptures, it explores modern society's unique obsession for all things pixelated. By using different materials and shapes, this Japanese artist creates pieces that look entirely dependent on light, just as pixels are.
The Kohei Nawa PixCell art series is currently part of the Synthesis exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT). Made up of a bunch of stuffed animals and other everyday objects such as shoes, guns and even musical instruments that were purchased on auction sites, the show seems like a mishmash of different things. Yet by being covered in transparent glass beads, the Kohei Nawa PixCell art series show a new vision of the cell of an image.
