First week’s assignment - making pixel by non-computer way.

Magnets are interesting material when it comes to ‘pixel’. They exist in certain size in industrial standard so look generic, they compel when attracting nearby, and most importantly to me, they ‘compose’ something- pixels- by artists’ choice. I prepare 11×17 inch magnetic pad with a number of two different size magnets, and started ‘drawing’ a drooling dog. Arranging them in my own grid was difficult because, again, they attract each other sometimes I had to give up drawing continuous line, leaving some space between each magnet group.

Additionally, I tried not to consider ‘pixel’ as square,

modular, tedious
