Artist Devorah Sperber works with "low-tech pixels": maptacks, marker caps, chenille stems, flower-power stickers, and spools of thread. via

Hrm, I like the concept A LOT, but the actual works... leave me with a taste of "meh."

This is really cool stuff! I liked the bus myself. It must look very neat when you approach it from a distance in the gallery, like a bus mirage.

...also known as mosaics.

The bus is pretty cool. Kinda plays with your perception of space—because there's a solid object there, but there isn't.

My wife and I did a similar sort of artwork with bottle caps glued to our old Honda.

I laid out templates in Photoshop for the sections of the car and plotted designs. Ours are pretty simple compared to Devorah Sperber's though.

I liked the rug reflected onto a polished cylinder.

The reflection in the cylinder is brilliant
