Painting Pixels

The pixel roller, from 2005, is to me another take on how technology influenced the creative process, and in this case the printing process. The combination of digital and a new materiality expressed with the digitial is impressive.

PixelRoller is a paint roller that paints pixels, designed as a rapid response printing tool specifically to print digital information such as imagery or text onto a great range of surfaces. The content is applied in continuous strokes by the user. PixelRoller can be seen as a handheld “printer”, based around the ergonomics of a paintroller, that lets you create the images by your own hand.

Pixels are everywhere, from dishes to architectural home structures.
This series from Remake Design reminds me of the Tetris video game.
