Komachin '96

Artist David Joyce created this unique digital mural for  Komachin Middle School in Lacey, Washington. From a  distance, the image appears to be a large conventional  photograph. Close inspection reveals, however, that it's  actually a mosaic comprised of thousands of pictures  (15,552 to be exact) of school students and staff. The work, which  was entirely produced using digital technology, was a percent for art commission administered through the Washington  State Arts Commission.  David Joyce (1946-2003)
