Shawn Smith-Artist (pixel art)

Artist statement:My work investigates the slippery intersection between the digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how we experience nature through technology. When we see images of nature on TV or on a computer screen, we feel that we are seeing nature but we are really only seeing patterns of pixelated light. For the past few years, I have been creating a series of "Re-things." These whimsical sculptures represent pixilated animals and objects of nature.
