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.
