These amazing sculptures are known as the most inspiring works of Shawn Smith. By building a series of intricate 3Dartsculptures that represent 2D Pixel images of different objects in nature, he created original, glamorous and imposing works. “My conceptual and material practice explores identity, color, labor, technology, and science. As an object maker, I am interested in relating these concepts back to the symbiotic connection between the hand and the “thing.” This relationship is a basic principle in the development of the modern human–biologically, technologically, culturally, and scientifically. I am fascinated by the importance of the “thing” in our history and how this relationship is changing with technology, as we become more removed from first hand experience by observing the world through a screen.”, said Shawn Smith.
