Pixln is a collection of projects around experiencing, making, hunting, and having fun with pixels.
"Pixeln" is german for "to pixel", to do something with or about pixels. I call it pixln, because the "e" in "pixeln" is so hard to render in 4pt font. :)
All pixln projects are easy and cheap to build and use without any technical skills or complicated tools, so they are well suited for children or professional educators.
I (Joshua) am a media educator with limited technical skills and a deep love for pixels. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out the (german) blog at www.pixln.de for more.
A grid of squares. As you walk past, something is moving. Can you figure out how it works? Try shining a light at yourself, at the ground, at something colourful. Jump, and dance. Try to anti-aliase or mix colours. Make the pixels move.
A smaller version is easy to build for yourself.
A long sign made of foldable boxes. Some are lit up. Was does it say?
This can be used to announce huge, hard to read messages.
Build your own pixelgrid
If you want to pixelate your screen or need light seperation for your arduino based rgb led project, I can show you how to build a simple pixelgrid. It's pretty cheap and easy to make. It has round pixels in a regular chessboard grid, and it's fun to use. Join me at my workshop (a table with materials and tools) and build your own.
