Japanese artist Yuni Yoshida has created a fantastic manipulated graphic art series in which small spots on various food items are pixelated.
Pixels are the smallest elements that make up an image, so tiny and numerous that they cannot be seen with the naked eye. In Yoshida’s series, entitled Pixelated, she makes viewers look twice by rendering food in their natural form. Using various ingredients, she manually pixelates fruits and even a burger by cutting hundreds of tiny organic cubes then arranging them.
“I want people to think, ‘Wait, something is different’, and become inspired,” Yuni said. “That is why I produce something with an immediate visual hook for attention. Yet, I also want it to inspire people to take another closer look.”
