Hama and Perler Bead Projects are reproductions of 8 bit graphic simulations of building explosions, using children's plastic beads to represent digital pixels. Each bead becoming a physical pixel. This work has also included photographic imagery such as nuclear explosions which was featured in 'A Series of Small Explosions'
