You like it? This mosaic is made exactly of wood scraps remaining from the work of designers and woodworkers Jason and Lars Dressler. The huge pixelated image out of scraps adorns the facade of the Yorkdale Mall in Toronto. The tsak was to create something that would evoke Ontario’s north. Inspired by their photograph of a fallen leaf, the Brothers Dressler crafted the mosaic from 35,788 wooden blocks made from a variety of woods salvaged from the collected history of their workshop.  As they explain, 'They include off-cuts from pieces, leftovers from jobs and extra pieces collected over the years and are shown all in their natural colours.'
