PIXY by Experientiae-Electricae


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.




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.
