[Pixelated Purgatory]
Dedicated to February the devotional month of purification. Vanitas is a still-life painting of a 17th-century Dutch genre containing symbols of death or change as a reminder of their inevitability. The word voxel originated by analogy with the word “pixel”, with vo representing “volume” and el representing “element”.
