PixCell – Kohei Nawa

PixCell’, is a mesmerizing series of sculpture by Japanese artist Kohei Nawa, who uses variably sized glass beads (“PixCell” beads, as Nawaw calls them) to cover the entire surface of objects, mostly taxidermied animals.

The outer layer suggests a molecular structure, and also references the pixel of the computer screen. “By covering 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” (PixCell) is shown.
