Pixels leverages the building blocks of Alphabit by fusing compositions of type together into bundled murrine tiles that are then “pulled” down into miniature. This work references glass’ role in our fiber optic networks, carrying information through the material’s total internal reflectance. A caricature of this technology, Pixels imagine our messages shrunken to the infinitesimal pockets of light that comprise digital communication. Phrases rendered include: ETAOIN SHRDLU, the full QWERTY lock-up, shift-characters, a range of emoticons, and “Hello World.”
