THE PIXEL PROJECT
"Virtual worlds are equivalent to a Copernican revolution. Before, we turn over the images, and now we turn inside them. Now we are not content with fondling them with the eyes. We mix with them and they drag us into their vertigo.
To produce in us the illusion that we can enter the pictures, like Alice in Wonderland, virtual worlds invade our cerebral cortex, with their laws and games. From there it came abysses experiences, but also hopes and thoughts of other places "(Philippe Quéau in The Virtual, Paidós Editions, Barcelona, 1995).
The pixel is located beyond the image, beyond its representation, taking as pure abstraction, pure unifying concept of reality - the image - whtich is set on the screen. This is all the more credible the more pixie image has, the greater the definition.
Oposed to photo chemistry, whose definition of the image depends on the number of points and its size, higher points less number on the image, then lower definition. The process in digital image is different, because the pixel size does not change: more pixels more image definition.
Donald Kuspit compare the impressionism of Seurat to digital images; the flick is the same as pixel. In this sense, the digital image can be seen as a huge web of colors linked in some way to shape the image.
