Meet The Pixelator And Make Your Own

The Pixelator aims to turn those ugly, blinding video billboard ads into art and pulls it off like only a geek can.

Made of white foamboard interlocked in a grid and covered in heavy frost diffusion gel, the Pixelator is placed over bright ads or television screens and reflects a colorful, pixelated image.

It's an unauthorized on-going video art performance collaboration with the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority, Clear Channel Communications, and its selected artists.

For additional details and tips on making your own,

In an attempt to broaden the scope of MTA's video art series, Pixelator takes video pieces currently on display and diffuses them into a pleasant array of 45 blinking, color-changing squares. Since the project is an anonymous collaboration, the resulting video is almost entirely unplanned and unanticipated, with the original artists helping to create new works of art without any knowledge of their participation. You can make your own Pixelator by following the creator's step-by-step guide.
