When we think about the use of pencils, we often refer to drawing. If "normal people" use pencils to unleash their creativity on a blank piece of paper, Christian Faur he does not like the others. This American artist, originally from Granville in Ohio use pencils ... as pixels to create.
Using hundreds of pencils of different colors, he thus amuses himself to represent different forms, like faces, which recall the technique known as pointedness : which consists of using small colored keys juxtaposed rather than flat tints.
In the video below, we see Christian Faur compose a face in stop motion. This technique allows you to see the advancement of creation slowly taking life for literally us "to become evident". A video that, unintentionally, also reminds us of loading images at the time when the internet was still usable in 56k.
