Takeshi Abe1977-

Abe photographs landscapes and human figures, then computerised their decomposition in pixels. He colors the cubes and sets them according to the mapped out pixelations. Abe constructs fuzzy images of memories, and the viewers will recognize the works as containing aspects of their own pasts. Although Abe's works seems to deal with casual everyday scenes, only a restricted amountof information is given to the viewer, meaning they must deploy their own memories to fully appreciate the work.
