An Interactive Light Sculpture
Pixel is an interactive light installation activated by human touch. Everywhere, pixels radiate from behind glass—they are tiny, formless objects existing at a remove from our bodies; just beyond our grasp. Pixels are the ambassadors to the digital world, representing all that we have wrought there through carefully choreographed fluctuations: pulses of current that result in changes of color which in aggregate form graphics and with time produce the illusion of motion. Ubiquitous and invisible, pixels show us everything.
Pixel can be turned on or off with a small remote control. When powered on, Pixel will continuously emit a bright, colored light from a palette of 12 colors designed for the piece. If you come within a few feet of it, Pixel will sense the electrical fields of your body and respond, brightening as you move closer. When you touch it, Pixel will sense your body directly and instantly change to a new color based on the feeling of your touch.
