Prehistoric Picture Project
The Prehistoric Picture Project uses animation to make the pictures come to life, and also to help us understood just how they worked as graphics in prehistoric times. This animation is based on Iron Age figures, dating from the last centuries BC, engraved into open-air rock slabs at Foppe di Nadro, Valcamonica, in the Italian Alps. Here the pictures are made by hammering little peck-marks into the smooth natural rock surface. We call them 'pexils'. When we work digitally they become pixels.
