NAME: Pixel is Data
AUTHOR: French creative technologist Matthieu Savary.
DESCRIPTION: This iPhone app lets you modify a picture of your choice by applying one of the 12 presets at your disposal. Modify the parameters, such as the mess or pixel density and you will get a unique piece of pixel art to share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and such. You can also rearrange the order of the pixels using the RGB component of the picture. The pixels will then be organized by color, a brand new way to look at your picture. The app is available for free in the App Store.
AMUSEMENT RATE: Our perception of an image is only one way among many to see it. Matthieu Savary considers that photographic data is data above all, and can therefore be reinterpreted to reach new levels of representations that go beyond our sense of reality.”Pixel is Data” will let you experiment with these new dimensions of perception while creating unique works of art at the same time.
