3D Visuals By Xia XiaoWan And Nobu Nakanishi.

Two artists, Xia XiaoWan and Nobu Nakanish, have both decided to use thin sheets of material arranged like dominoes to create visual depth. While both explore the use of visuals and space in similar manners, the resulting works are dramatically different, in terms of mood and overall vibe.

Unlike XiaoWan, Nakanishi’s finished product is light and airy, in material and subject matter.
