Hongtao Zhou’s ‘Textscape’ incorporates layers of letters, numbers, and braille, which are built up to different levels for a textured effect.
The three-dimensional blocks also visually profile their subject matter – one of the documents is about New York City and it emulates its cityscape and skyscrapers.
The artist was inspired by early Chinese woodblock printing, making an association with 3D printing.
