Permanent Public Art Installation at 25 York Street, Toronto


pixel cube (looking up)



Pixel cube is a 12 x 15 x 18 foot cube made up of 30,000 individually controllable colour LED's suspended in the foyer of 25 York Street. The pixels create a three dimensional image surface that can update at full video speed. A number of different approaches are used to present abstract and real-world imagery on and in the cube. The cube can present material prepared in advance, but it can also be live, and interactive.

The cube is real three dimensional display surface. By selectively lighting the pixels, dynamic light sculptures can be can be created and interacted with.
