These Pixelated Sculptures That Look Like Computer Glitches Are Actually Made From Wood

For most of us, pixelated photos are an annoyance. Taiwanese artist Hsu Tung Han, however, uses them for inspiration in his latest series of stunning wooden sculptures.

By carving delicate block-shaped details that separate from various parts of the sculpture, Han successfully creates the bizarre yet magnificently original illusion of pixelation in 3D form. He applies this technique masterfully on his most recent finished product, which depicts a snorkeler underwater. Here, the wooden ‘pixels’ seem to represent the water that surrounds and submerges the snorkeling man.

Han has been posting photos of his carved sculptures on Flickr since 2006, and has developed a unique niche for blending traditional styles of woodwork with modern artistic elements. Take in a sample for yourself below, and follow the links provided to see more.
