Memorial Dice Portait

Canadian artist and designer Tobias Wong  died last year at the young age of 35, or more specifically, 13,138 days. In tribute, his friend Frederick McSwain  created this immense portrait of Wong entitled Die using 13,138 dices as part of the BrokenOff BrokenOff exhibition at Gallery R’Pure  in NYC in memoriam to the artist during NY Design Week. McSwain via Core77:

The idea of a die itself was appropriate—the randomness of life. It felt like [a medium] he would use. Because [Tobias] was a very street-level force, I thought it was appropriate [to install] the portrait on the floor. Its not something I wanted to suspend on the wall; I wanted it to be right there on the floor where you almost interact with it.
The idea of every decision you make and everything you’ve done in your life, defines who you are. All of those days symbolically makes up the image of Tobi.
