The Pixelated Man

At first glance, this sculpture might look like it’s made out of LEGO blocks, but it’s actually an intricate handcrafted work of art by Swedish sculptor Thomas Broomé.

The artist’s Low Res Man was fabricated from thousands of precisely arranged 1cm see-through acrylic cubes, then painted to look like a real person when viewed from a great distance. Upon closer inspection, he degrades into a low resolution, bitmapped shell of a man. The sculpture is loaded up with ropelights on the inside, so he lights up when plugged in.

Can you tell the difference between the real people and the fake plastic one in the exciting party shot above? I had a hard time myself.
