The Physical Pixel Project is about computer animation in sculpture. Picture a pixel to be any size and shape you wish to create. This site is the portfolio of a digital artist who wishes to incorporate computer animation into the physical world. The monitor is only a beginning...

The Physical Pixel Project was directed by Kelly Heaton during 1998 - 2000. The research was conducted at the MIT Media Laboratory with the partial support of the Jacob K. Javitt's Fellowship Program. The work has been exhibited in part at SIGGRAPH'99 and the Tokyo Toy Fair (1999). Based on her research with physical pixels, Heaton received a Master of Science from the MIT Media Laboratory in May 2000. A .pdf form of the thesis, entitled Physical Pixels, is available here.
