In Pieces, Multimedia Art by Nathan Sawaya and Dean West

I know it’s St Patty’s day, but it’s the last day of the In Pieces multimedia exhibit at Openhouse Gallery in NYC, featuring a collaboration between lego sculpture artist Nathan Sawaya and photographer Dean West. It’s an integrated series in which Nathan’s realistic lego sculptures have been digitally incorporated into Dean’s macabre, cinematic photographs. The life-size sculptures are also on display in the gallery to add to the ambience. It’s sounds incredible and I wish I could see these in person. Also, be sure to listen to Jian Ghomeshi’s interview with Nathan Sawaya on CBC Radio.
