Pixels and Polaroids: 8-Bit Characters in a Photographic World


Every time you think we’ve taken retro cool as far as it can go, somebody takes it a little further. These awesome mixed media pieces by Jherin Miller, which we spotted over at trenchant, combine polaroid photography (or at least the evocation of polaroid photography) with pixellated’80s video game graphics. According to Miller, the idea was to experiment with making “the pixelated characters interact with things in the real world” — we just can’t stop imagining what it might be like to be a pixellated man living in a high-def world.
