Pixelosis is the result of enlarging a digital image so much that it becomes blurred and cannot be fully grasped. Its smallest elements are pixels, which constitute a whole when arranged in a certain way.
Extreme close-up, which is what we experience in pixelosis, enables the viewer to get lost in the virtual potentiality of the image and rearrange its meaning anew.
The installation in the Self-service Museum is a total space, made up of a huge number of colourful elements – pixels that could be freely arranged. Combining selected pixels contributes to gradual emergence of shapes and meanings out of the apparent chaos.
Building an image from simple modules is a visual rule that fires up the imagination and encourages a creative attitude to reality in different people, irrespective of their age. These small recurring elements hide an almost infinite possibility of combinations.
