Dutch master made with coffee cups

By

Vermeer-cups

Students from the American University in Dubai have made a replica of Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ using plastic coffee cups or pods, as they are sometimes known. The original can be admired at the Mauritshuis in The Hague.

“After pixellating the image to basic color units, it was split into four equal quarters. the sections were then divided amongst four groups in his class along with heaping piles of the recycled coffee pods. hundreds of units later, and the image was compiled into the reinterpretation of the 17th-century classic.”
