    8BITWOOD "is a journey into the madness of homemade pixel art. I work in the videogame industry and I thought what better way to pay homage to my favorite games than to cut out thousands of little blocks of wood, stain them, glue them together, seal them and then hang the result on the wall? I work at a videogame developer that is kind enough to let me create murals of pixel art and put them up on the wall for display."

    The artist Helmut Smit makes a fire from an Ikea rope, hanger, wine rack, egg cup, napkins, and floral embellishments.
    This project called the FLAMMA (A Basic Need)
    "FLAMMA harks back to one of humanity’s basic needs: making fire. I thought it would be interesting to go into IKEA as if I was a primitive human being and make fire using products found there. The project also fits the back-to-basics image of IKEA and the Swedish lifestyle. IKEA does not, however, sell lighters or matches."
    "panoptICONS" addresses the fact that you are constantly being watched by surveillance cameras in city centres. The surveillance camera seems to have become a real pest that feeds on our privacy. To represent this, camera birds - city birds with cameras instead of heads - were placed throughout the city centre of Utrecht where they feed on our presence. In addition, a camera bird in captivity was displayed to show the feeding process and to make the everyday breach of our privacy more personal and tangible.

    panoptICONS is a project by Thomas voor 't Hekke and Bas van Oerle who work together by the name of 'Helden'.
