lego bonsai by azuma makoto Lego Bonsai Looks Pixelated

Tokyo-based artist Azuma Makoto‘s works are usually of the botanical nature, like the painstakingly cut, twisted, and folded leaves that comprise his Collapsible Leaves sculptures. A few of his works though, like the Lego Pine, use non-botanical media to evoke visions of plant life. I love how the angular lines of the Lego make the piece look like a pixelated picture.

The Lego Pine would look great on a table next to his stellar astroturf-covered Herman Miller Aeron chair (the same chairs we have at the office here).

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
