5" x 5" x 1"        250 LEGO elements.        Completed April 6, 2009
In conjunction with the giant Nintendo DSi display commissioned by Nintendo of America, I also created and displayed smaller life-size DSi models at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center throughout April 2009.

It was challenging to recreate the Nintendo DSi at such a small scale using hard-to-find "light blue" colored LEGO elements. There aren't a lot of different shapes available, so I had to use only the most basic bricks and only a few "special pieces" like hinges and arches. I wanted to make sure I got the overall shape and basic features correct and to-scale.

They're life-size!

These miniature models were placed on display for a few weeks at the Nintendo World Store in New York City.
