Japanese artist Kohei Nawa recently showed his "PixCell" collection at Tokyo's Scai The Bathhouse. "PixCell" is a collection of regular every day items, busts & taxidermy covered in glass beads. Nawa uses a wide variety of sizes of glass beads and the results are stunning. The way the light reflects through the beads distorts the objects and sometimes makes them barely recognizable.
To me, the objects look like they are covered in sugar or some sort of candy.
