Levi van Veluw* has taken his self-portraiture to the next level by bringing his family into the picture. "Portrayed in this piece is a room with 5 persons sitting at a table.... The endless repetition of wooden blocks stands for van Veluw’s attempts to gain control of his own position within the familial structure."

Why-oh-why didn't this zoom out to reveal they were playing Scrabble?

That was cool. Reminds me of something, but I can't quite...

Oh well, back to Minecraft!

Interesting! And vaguely spooky.

There is a block missing on the central figure's left bicep and thus I am finding it hard to concentrate on anything else.

On the wood block theme, he's also done an automata which is just as incredible as the video above but... not as creepy.
