In 2007 The Graffiti Research Lab took control of the KPN Building, one of the permanent media facades, turning the area into the People´s Revolutionary Green Laser Light District, a place to display your uncurated animations and graphics. The back-side of the building is becoming a giant wall you can write on with a BFL (big fucking laser).(more…)
At a time when artists misuse image, Pixy came out of the need to overcome already existing video displays. Pixy is an artistic process that allows materialising the image within a number of independent physical pixels. Pixy displays a low resolution image one can manipulate and physically distort; each pixel of the image is an autonomous physical element made out of electroluminescent paper, it can be moved. The Pixy’s structure is not limited to 2 dimensions, it can be placed on a volume and become an object with an interactive potential. The matrix keeping the same resolution can change its physical form.
Pixy is a production of the French Canadian collective Experientiae Electricae. It is a co-production between Videographe (Montreal) and ARCADI (France) and parter Nanolight. Banff new Media is also going to be participant next spring.(more…)
Flexipix media architecture: coloured light, video screen and façade all in one!
FLEXIPIX developed out of an art project by the BBM group they constructed the world’s first mobile, five-sided pixelroom and exhibited it in public spaces in Germany. On 400sqm screens on all the walls and the ceiling visitors can watch videos that deal with the future of public spaces and the freedom of the citizen in europe. The room was developed in collaboration with BBO, betreiber blinkender objekte (operators of flashing objects).
The company FLEXIPIX, which merges the two media – light and plastic, is obliged to the utopias of the aforementioned giants of future architecture. Their collaboration with BBM on the FLEXIPIX project stands for technically innovative and socially responsible thinking. High quality, environmentally meaningful and socially desirable buildings are possible with our technology.Through our contribution public spaces will be revitalised and again become places for the population to meet and debate.

The Source, an eight storey high kinetic sculpture, is the new symbol for the London Stock Exchange. Every morning, millions of viewers around the world will watch the installation come to life, signifying the opening of the London Markets.(more…)
16ⁿ _ ƒ5³ is an interactive kinetic light sculpture, extending the bi-dimensional screen space, by transposition of its pixel resolution to the physical space. Conceived as a modular infrastructure, 16ⁿ _ ƒ5³ is a communication and computation system, propagating in form of light and sound, the events it inhabits. Presence and motion create and alter the transmitted data, and propagation of this data becomes a space-time parameter.(more…)
The Aquatics Centre in Bejing, commonly known as the Water Cube, will be the home for nearly all of the 2008 Summer Olympics aquatic events. This unusual venue spans some 80,000 square meters, and will have approximately 440,000 LEDs embedded throughout the structure.(more…)
Texas always does things in bigways, and Victory Park, an urban, mixed-use community/businessdevelopment area that recently opened in Dallas, personifies that grandiose Texan vision. A network of grand-format LED displays, a key component of this entertainment destination, intricately connects visitors to the United States’ largest outdoor, digital-art gallery (part of what is known as Victory Media Network® [VMN]) and binds Victory Park tenants, visitors, sponsors and visual artists into a globally connected media world. Three distinct, yet integrated, display sites comprise the VMN display system, the site’s most visible aspect:(more…)
