A Toaster Made of 2,500 Pieces of Bread

Photo link

Your eyes don't deceive you - that is a giant toaster made of toast. Artists Ingrid Falk and Gustavo Aguerre, AKA FA+, created a huge mural using 2,500 pieces of bread heated at various lengths of time in the toaster to produce the color variation needed to represent the appliance. It took them two days and the help of a bunch of their toaster-owning friends.

I get that they made a 43x71 bitmap which they then cropped down, but it seems a bit more complicated since some of the "pixels" (ie. individual pieces of toast) have more than one color value. For example, the corners are dark AND light, allowing more complex details than that low resolution version might offer by default. I wonder how they did that. If I only saw this picture alone, I'd assume it was faked. I guess they probably scraped the burn off parts of the bread. Is that cheating? Perhaps...
