Scum Pixel

Annotate & Collect
'Scum' refers to a foamy layer or mass that forms on the surface of liquid when it is boiled or fermented. Two chemical solutions are combined to react and produce a layer of polyurethane foam which increases in volume in a manner that evokes uncontrolled cellular division. The mass is vacant of meaning or symbolic value and represents the bodies and objects we continue to consume in a capitalist world.

PixCell: Pixel (picture element) + Cell:Once images of a particular object collected through the computer screen identifies itself as a suitable motif, the physical object is acquired through the internet and encapsulated in a layer of spheric cells. This process homogenizes the surface texture and depth perception for each piece. Although various in size, each sphere allows one to simultaneously "see" different details within it. The result is a visual experience with a certain repetitive quality and a warped sense of depth.

Kohei NAWA, born 1975, is based in Kyoto. He studied at Kyoto City University of Arts.
