Watch as I gradually dismantle this large tabletop #LEGO mosaic portrait of classic Nintendo sprites – only with the footage reversed to create the illusion of building it from bottom to top!
This is a large mosaic build that I gradually constructed throughout the fall of 2013, using mainly leftover pieces from my exhibit at Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Plaza. Previously in spring 2013, Nintendo of America commissioned me to construct a store display for their flagship store for the release of LEGO City: Undercover for the Wii U. After the exhibit ended in July of that year, I got to keep all of my original pieces, and thus I eventually laid down the groundwork for this mosaic mural.
This mosaic mural was used in a lot of my previous photo and video shoots for the background, as you can see in a lot of my videos. I eventually decided to dismantle it in May 2019 in preparation for the move into my new apartment. This video is roughly 3 hours of raw footage edited down with the footage sped up, and played in reverse to create the illusion of me building it.
