Pixelated Floor Art

These rugs are a new edition to the Spanish rug company Nanimarquina. They have always had some really funky designed rugs, but this one is by far my favorite.
They look like pixelated digital art zoomed in. These rugs have their source in photographic enlargement, giving the pieces a digital and technological look. Depending on the light or time of day, a glance captures the random union of one part of the 26 colours that make up the rug, always creating surprising groupings that are surprising to the eye; really shocking optical effects.

An interesting piece of art to grace any floor.
They remind me of Dali's infamous painting "Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea" which at Twenty Meters becomes a Portrait of Abraham Lincoln.
