Pixel by Pixel Week 1

Make a “physical” image using non-traditional “pixels”, preferably physical or “analog” try to avoid using the computer.

For this first assignment, I literally had no idea what I should do. I thought about it for a while, but I had a lot of difficulty coming up with an idea or inspiration. I didn’t want to think of pixels in a traditional sense, so I thought about fabric and textiles, but then I thought it would be too conventional and I also didn’t know what to transform the fabric textiles into. I went to the craft store for another class and wandered around looking for some ideas. I saw googly eyes and just went for it. When I started composing the eyes together I still had no idea what I was doing. I had kind of forgotten that the pixels together would have to come together as one. I just laid them out to compose a sort of pattern and then kept adding until I thought it was somewhat complete. Below are some photos I took of what I made.
