Pixel Art Workshop

Sun 27th May, 2018

Today I ran a PixelArt workshop as part of the Spark Festival at Phoenix in Leicester. The main purpose of the workshop was to have some fun, but it is also part of a project I have been working on. The idea is to create a system for creating and exchanging 16 x 16 pixel images via an app and have them displayed on LED panels. You can see the results of todays workshop here, but also keep an eye out for future developments.

My plan for the future is to turn this archive in to something of an annotated record of early "dig..

Connectivity is truly ubiquitous and we have faster ..

Cyberculture Pt2: ...and the Birth of Cyberculture

Sun 21st May, 2017

The rise of the Internet was not just about technology. For many people it was part of a vision that saw digital technology as having the potential to create a new world without national borders or governments, where all information would be free and where human consciousness would be lifted to a new level.
