Space Invaders

Space Invaders was one of the all-time classic video games and kick started the modern games industry. The pixelated enemy alien has become a pop culture icon often used as a figure of speech representing video games as a whole. This arcade game has been my inspiration for this collection of jewellery. I use the 8-bit characters only as references to create my own digital characters. Color plays an important role as a strong perceptual language, as it emphasizes specific parts and highlights their importance as opposed to others; it provokes emotional responses and makes the pieces more vivid, as if animated.
