An animated depiction of the last days and final destination of a P. rotundus specimen, part of my 8-Bit Labs series of sculptures.

Each piece is based on a classic videogame character as seen through the prism of real-life anatomy. They are rendered in clay, painted with acrylics and sealed in resin to give the appearance of a specimen preserved in formaldehyde. Seen here is a Pakku rotundus, which is based on Pac Man.

Sculpture, art and animation by Jaime Margary

Music: "Wake and Bake" by Definite One
Guitar: Emma X, Bass: Jason Armstrong
Conceptual arrangement by Jaime Margary

Special thanks to my friends for lending me a hand and to Valencia Community College for letting me use their lab and specimens for the shoot.

LOL Aunque mamon no es bueno en Puerto Rico, aprendi las diferencias sutiles en nuestro lenguaje gracias al Chavo del Ocho (la Chilindrina quejandose que tenia bichos encima siempre me daba gracia cuando era chiquito). :teevee:

Muchas gracias y gracias por esperar! Los ultimos meses han sido loquitos pero tengo algo en camino, y la gente que lo ha visto se quedan asi :eyepopping:

lol Lo que dire es que es una pintura, y le he dado mucha atencion.

Lo unico que aprendi el Chavo del Ocho es que es justo golpear a gente en la cabeza con un martillo gigante si ellos tratan de robar tu pastel, haha

Apuesto que igual me quedo tirando litros de baba con tu pintura :heart:
Jajajaja y mamón en el contexto utilizado es para hacer referencia a que el video está súper loco, así debrayado jajaja Y que la escultura de Pacman es hermosa hermosa y llena de detalles, por eso eres un mamón :heart:
