Picture Pixel Art

This uses the simple concept of pixelating a photograph when someone stands in front of the camera. The pixelation has different parameters in the computer that project different images. Although this is an interactive art and the computer does it instantly when a person stands in front, I think it would also be easy to do it manually on photoshop.
