Pixel art has been around for decades, and whether you’re playing a video game or enjoying some 8-bit nostalgia of daily life in Japan, it’s always a joy.
A couple of weeks ago Spoon & Tamago featured the work of the videographer Yusuke Shigeta, who has taken pixel art to the next level by animating a famous 17th century folding screen, the Sekigahara sansui zu byobu of the Osaka Museum of History, using 3D modeling and pixel design.
The result is a super cool rendering of the late medieval/early modern world, helping us imagine what it might have been like to be on the ground! You can check out the video below for a glimpse at the animation and see more details at the Culture Gate website where this and other art projects are being sponsored. Happy viewing!
