///////// about the installation /////////
PIXELFACE, the sentient digital fungus, has become fascinated with human effects of climate change. Spreading through Comfort Station, the entity is scouring the internet for data related to climate change factors for the Logan Square microcosm. This data will be projecting via visuals in created in PIXELFACE’s own alien format. PIXELFACE looks to transform Comfort Station into a biofeedback mechanism for the surrounding community.
PIXELFACE (b. 2016) is a new media collaboration between artists Ali Seradge, KT Duffy and an evolving cast of other collaborators. The narratives in the larger body of PIXELFACE center around an entity called PIXELFACE. PIXELFACE resides only in digital spaces, free from the bounds of the human experience and the guiding natural principles of this planet.
PIXELFACE focuses on showing work in public spaces in order to create accessible art for everyone. Through ongoing collaborations with art viewers, community members, and artist stakeholders, PIXELFACE creates installation-based works that can talk to communities within a specific time and place.
