For transmediale aquabitArt presents a group exhibition and development of their previous project TOUCH ME which used interactive light boards and old TVs as building blocks and to show digital videos. The focus of PIXELATE ME is to redefine the meaning of the pixel and examine how pixels give us information, how they interact and how the human brain can understand, re-interpretate and assemble this visual information. While the pixels gather to form information, the medium itself becomes a message carrier. Each TV or the combination of TVs could be viewed as a pixel. Each screen shows a different video, which at the same time relates to the other videos, generating a new final image in a different scale and perspective. On the interactive light boards, one sensor reacts on the electro-static field of the surrounding and activates 4 LED pixels in similar way. The scale of the pixel changes responding on the sensitivity of the viewer.
