pixels             …everywhere.

Pixels everywhere. Really big ones.

Here’s another example of pixelized light that’s not far from where I live. Check out the video at http://www.solarcollector.ca/ex_v_vid.php — if you want you can skip the beginning and start watching at 1:30 or so into the video. The design was done by Gorbet Design.

It’s about as far away from video display as you can get, but it’s definitely pixelized. It’s art, too, because you can upload pixel patterns. I’ve seen it many times and it’s always interesting.You can watch it live via webcam (after dark in Kitchener –eastern North America time– of course)

    Thanks for the post about Solar Collector, Bob! We’ve actually met on a couple of occasions, talking about interactivity and microtiles, among other things. Glad you liked Solar!

    What do you think it is about being able to upload patterns, that makes it “art?” I’m always curious how different people decide whether something like Solar is art or not…

    I’m surprised that anyone would think that Solar Collector isn’t art, Rob. Those people that do ‘get it’ –and that’s most people I think — are going to have a lot of enjoyment expressing themselves with pixels everywhere in a few years!
