Pixels

Pixels is an interactive sculpture by Jonas Vorwerk and Yoren Schriever. Digiluce helped specify Pixels 2.0 (PCB design and production by Frank van den Berg), intermediated in the commisioning of Pixels by KunstRAI 2012, and joined Jonas and Yoren in Barcelona for the Caixa Forum Exhibition.
