Vancouver-based artist Ed Spence is making some of my favourite work right now. I dropped by his studio a couple weeks ago and I couldn’t leave without buying a piece. Let me explain to you what you’re looking at.

Ed takes a photograph of a crumpled piece of reflective paper. Then he prints the image and cuts out a section of it using a blade. He carefully cuts up the section into small “pixels” and re-arranges them based on colour. So if you were to run your hand along the finished photograph you would feel the texture of the cut pieces.

You kinda have to see these in person to really get the full effect. Really fantastic stuff! Lots more images below. The one I bought is the next one down.

Love this little animation by Amy Lockhart and Marc Bell. It’s several years old now so if Maisie over at It’s Nice That hadn’t dug it up I might have never seen it. Watch the animation below!
