Artist Hsu Tung Han’s Pixelated Wood Sculptures

Recently we watched Susan Kare’s lecture on Icon Design and saw how the first of her most iconic designs began as a 32 x 32 pixel art. From these little boxes was birthed images rich in meaning and symbolism. They were used as devices to communicate, as well as to facilitate the transition into the world of technology. Similarly, sculptor Hsu Tung Han not only explores the building blocks that create art, but also the innumerable fragments that construct the world around us. He illuminates the intersection between art and technology/science, crafting the human form in such a manner that it seems to come to life, yet the magnified blocks on his sculptures interrupt their motion and freezes them in order to seek and understand the essence and meaning of the whole form.
