PEER ONE at the Walters 2012
thewalters.org/exhibitions/peer-one

Commissioned response to the Walters' netsuke collection in Japanese Objects, Hackerman House

Travis Hallenbeck's collection of matching icons (bitmap files)

Both icons and netsuke are artforms of the miniature--expressing fond characterization and recognizable attributes through miniscule processes aimed at rendering tiny, believable forms. Whereas netsuke were often highly detailed and rendered characters, bitmaps must express their subject in the most efficient graphical means possible.
