This artist’s work springboards from the philosophy of Gunpei Yokoi (the inventor of Nintendo’s Game Boy), and combines the idea of Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology. Withered technology in this context refers to a mature technology that is cheap and well understood. Lateral Thinking refers to finding radical new ways of using such technology. Yokoi held that toys and games do not necessarily require cutting edge technology; novel and fun gameplay are more important. This concept is something that has been practiced throughout recent art history. The silkscreen prints of Andy Warhol and the American comic-style expression of Roy Lichtenstein, are born from withered technology. The pixelated expressions of 8-bit video games, which are very nostalgic for those born in 1980s, are also one withered part of this evolutionary process. This pixel format might be forgotten in a few years due to the appearance of the Retina Display; but its use as a form of art may persist. This artist interrogates lateral thinking of this pixel, converting it into 3 dimensional objects.
