Milk Pixel in Realtime magazine
"Flickering from across the room was Milk Pixel built by the Bristol Robotics Lab, an inspired re-use project incorporating LEDs into two-litre plastic milk bottles. The 64 bottle/pixel array continuously responded to sound performances and moving image in unexpected collaborations and improvisations."
Interestingly the picture chosen to head the article (shown above) was one I took of Jason and Paul (from Potential Indifference) debugging MilkPixel a day or so before the event. It's nice to think that the editors thought that the hands-on sorting of a tanlge of ribbon cable and recycled junk represented the craftivism movement to such a degree.
The Article was written by Melinda Rackham, an Emerging Artforms Curator and Adjunct Professor at RMIT University.
Just for the record, MilkPixel no longer flickers, we fixed that bug :-)
