032c fashion director MARC GOEHRING has created an island on ANIMAL CROSSING, and he’s importing some of his favorite art – namely, a Wade Guyton originally exhibited at Galerie Chantal Crousel in Paris last year. In order to make the work a part of his sculpture garden, he “hand-pixelated” the work – a digital collage referencing an “XVideos.com” video called “Gay sailors enjoy piece of navy cakes” – breaking it down into 56 squares and reassembling them into eight rows of seven pieces each. Then, he created a QR code using his iPhone and uploaded it to his NookPhone, imported it into Animal Crossing and putting the artwork together one block at a time. Goehring reckons that the process took him about five hours to complete the picture, which is now the centerpiece in his cherry-blossom filled outdoor sculpture park. Several works by Guyton now populate his indoor gallery as well. See the process – and the result – below.
Where it all began: Marc falls in love with Guyton’s work at Galerie Chantal Crousel back in 2019.
It’s going to be a long night.
But the heart wants what the heart wants.🌹
Only a few more squares to go…
