These are photo-realistic portraits made out of 20,000 or more children's craft beads, also known as fuse beads or ironing beads. The mosaics combine my interests in photography and art and are a new way to look at digital images: what I do by hand over a period of several weeks, the computer does thousands of times a day without anyone noticing. These mosaics celebrate the lowly pixel!
