Pixellated Reality

8-Bit Digital Ceramic Artworks by Toshiya MasudaThose of a certain age, swept up in a nostalgic wave for the 1980s and 1990s, would do well to collect the remarkable ceramic objects created by Osaka-based Toshiya Masuda.

Inspired by the 8-bit computer games from his youth, the artist hand-crafts ceramic objects in a super pixellated style, as if they had leapt out of an early generation computer screen.  These once familiar items, from wine bottles to teapots and trainers, explore the boundary between actual and virtual realities.  Some of them even mimic images affected by computer glitches.  Perhaps the kiln was attacked by a software bug?

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.
