The Sliced Pixel Project
The Sliced Pixel Project is a self initiated project that started in 2009 and later became one of my most appreciated works. This project is all about simplicity, only including what’s absolutly necessary, yet at the same time preserving as much detail as possible.
With this technique I used the most basic elements in todays graphic design; the pixel. The pixels were sliced in half, and with the sliced pixels I created numerous animal heads. Up-close all you see is triangles, but when you look from a distance, the big picture becomes clear.
The Sliced Pixel Technique isn't a 'one-button' effect, although there's some software available that tries to mimic the effect, the original Sliced Pixel images are made in (Adobe) Illustrator using a grid. Every triangle has been colored one by one.
"His graphics may look like overly stretched pictures, but that’s entirely the point—you need to see beyond the surface until the details fall into place. Works like magic, but really—it’s all in the technique."
