Erik Jensen Art
Company Description:Living in a technological world, everything we see is pixelated. When we remember things, we are remembering mental pictures, which in turn is really the pixelation, rather than the piece itself. Think, why do so many people love the Mona Lisa but haven’t seen the real painting with their own eyes?
I strive to grasp this concept by creating pixel pieces that also send literal messages. Each piece becomes a journal entry for me. Recycled computer keyboards are collected, keys are popped off, color sorted, washed, and some dyed. Each key has its own personality expressed by shape, color, depth, etc. Placing these keys together gives a pixelated beauty from the front and a mesmerizing texture up close and on the side.
Another layer is added to these artworks by using the natural characters of the keycaps to create hidden words, dates, quotes, etc., which makes them great conversation starters in addition to being an eye-catching piece in your home.
