The third artist feature for the FUTRA X UNION ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROJECT is PEXELS by lighting designer Pete Thornbury. PEXELS are pixels that have escaped their usual screens and squares, no longer constrained to grids or retina displays they are free to weave throughout any space indoors and out. Combining creatively arranged strands of addressable LED’s with a customized real-time software control system; PEXELS are site-specific art installations with audio-reactive capabilities. They rely not only on the architectural elements, but also the auditory landscape of the environment they exists in. PEXELS can be displayed in any color combination, sculptural formation, and they can programmed to change in speed and color to create movement within the form.

The PEXELS light-art installation covering the entire ceiling in the NOISE ROOM at UNION will debut at the CYCLONE x DECIBEL: Dyed Soundorom event on Friday, November 17th happening from 9pm – 9am. For this special 12-hour event featuring music by Dyed Soundorom, Orazio Rispo, Droog, HAAS, Matt Ossentjuk, and Nordic Soul; FUTRA is working with the CYCLONE visual team who created their own projection-mapped video and sculptural installation. We are looking forward to this impressive event and collaborating with CYCLONE, DECIBEL, and UNION. Tickets and info can be found here: UNION.COM
