Pixelet
Interactive Installation

Pixelet is an artwork combined with interactive technology, mathematic and origami. The original creative idea is that I want to let the origami transform into pixel of Image. People can reposition the origami on the table, and the depth sensor detects the location of the origami, and the projector put the light mapping on the surface of the origami. People will find 3 kinds of picture among these origamis. First, people can arrange the origami into a picture. Second, project will put some hidden image on the surface of the origami, people have to put these origamis together, and the hidden image will be shown out. Third, when people put these origamis totally separated and no touch each other, the projector will let the origami become a pixel like a pixel of LED screen, and project VJ image on each origami. Pixelet try to let people feel the pixel concept is not just the element of image, every object even though the simplest object like origami can be transform to the basic element of present, people can make real object by themselves, play object by other people and discover more possibility.
