Dallas-based artist Shawn Smith has a special knack for creating awesome digital sculptures from man-made composites and recycled materials. His whimsical sculptures, which he lovingly calls Re-things, represent pixilated animals and objects of nature. He finds images of his subjects online and then converts these 3D sculptural representations into 2D images.
My work investigates the slippery intersection between the digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how we experience nature through a television or a computer screen. Readily available images make us believe that we “know” these natural objects but we really only identify patterns of pixilated light.
