Most of the thirty somethings have a pixelated childhood. We didn’t know much about 3D graphics. Even more, some of us have vivid memories when Pac-Man and Space Invaders were not vintage or retro, but high-tech games.
This had an influence on most of our everyday life. We were amazed by square burgers, we were dancing like an Egyptian o-e-o etc.
Then 90’s tried to squeeze pixels as much as they could. 00’s almost vanished them in HD. Pixels always lived in our hearts. So did at mr. Dzmitry Samal, a Paris-based designer who seems to feel nostalgic of the squared based graphics of ’80s.
Dzmitry Samal made a series of sunglasses with a pixelated form, under the name “5dpi” and “6dpi”. The frames are from acetate and the models are patented.
That space invader almost hit you!
