Pixels and Polaroids

Artist Jherin Miller is a freelance graphic designer and pixel artist who is currently attending California College of Arts for Interaction Design.

“Pixels and Polaroids is a series of images I’ve created combining pseudo-Polaroid photography and retro 80s era video game graphics. The concept behind Pixels and Polaroids was to blend these two elements into one world where pixelated characters live through the eye of a Polaroid camera. My goal was to combine retro film photography and retro digital graphics into one interesting world, and you get to view this world and it’s inhabitants through these “photographs”. The experiment was the result of working on my video project: Where the Sun Sleeps. During the making of the video, I thought: “What if instead of basing the characters in this pixelated world I used real world footage as the setting and had the pixelated characters interact with things in the real world”? Already committed to my original project I thought about other ways I could express this concept. That’s when I had the Idea of mix- ing the 2 retro elements of Polaroids and pixel art, and this is the result of that idea.”
