Complexion

Joseph Beam's avatar Joseph Beam

Complexion is described as a large pixel mosaic made using 3000 hexagons of different varieties of wood. The work is 8 foot wide by 8 foot high. It is a Pop Art version of a close up face. The process to make it involves choosing wood varieties found from around the world and selecting them according to color. The image becomes three dimensional and more life like when viewed through the camera of your phone. The best viewing distance is approximately 20 feet away. Try it. Enjoy.
