Pixels is an interactive installation designed as a playful set of blocks that allow to create dynamic environments controlled by the public rather than the artist.

The installation is composed out of multiple LED-lit cubes, which can change the color and intensity by rotation. Pixels provide an open playground where everyone can create their own space, color and atmosphere by using the blocks to build sculptures, images or animations.

The pixel blocks are a tool that triggers both individual expression and collective exploration. Both are an integral element of the artwork that becomes complete through the multiple transient interactions with the public.
