Space Pixels

Space Pixels is an interactive light installation, made of mirrored stainless steel and intelligent pixels. The shapes and patterns are formed through reflections, changes in light, colour and intensity.

The installation explores methods for creating volumetric displays, using techniques found in kaleidoscopes. Multiple three-sided mirror kaleidoscopes allow the image to be viewed from multiple angles, creating the illusion of transparency and volume.

Microphones capture transient sound near the work that influence the patterns and intensity of the light. This allows the work to respond to the environment and be explored in playful ways.

Space Pixels is inspired by Atari 2600 computer games. Games like Space Invaders and Asteroids use simple animation techniques to create staggered movement as objects move around the screen, with coloured pixel explosions when asteroids are destroyed.
