"Mr. Nawa soon found inspiration in life’s tiniest building blocks. A central concept in his work is what he calls the “PixCell,” a portmanteau word that combines the idea of a cell with that of a pixel, the smallest unit of a digital image. By covering the surface of a taxidermied deer with glass beads, he says, he is “PixCellizing” it. It is his take, he says, on our obsession with viewing and filtering the world through pixels — on digital cameras, on our smartphones, online — which at once distorts and illuminates the world we live in."
