Paris-based concept artist, Dzmitry Samal, announces the launch of his newly-developed 6dpi glasses line.
Available in the summer of 2010, these futuristic glasses have been designed with a pixelated effect, deliberately reflecting society’s fascination with an “informational aesthetic”.
The inspiration for the design is clearly taken from late 1980s computerized graphics and video games such as Tetris. While computer images and graphics have been revolutionized over the past two decades, Samal’s glasses are reminiscent of society’s digital roots and how technology has inspired almost everything in use today. Even something as utilitarian as glasses can be transformed using technology.
Georgian model Viktoria Kvavtsova ( http://viktoriakravtsova.blogspot.com/ ) will model the prototype for Samal’s retro-futuristic eyewear.
