‘Pixel’, A Short Video Profiling the Work of Pixel Artist Kyle McCoy

“Pixel” is a short video by One Focus Video that profiles the work of Kyle McCoy, an artist who creates pop culture pixel art using plastic beads. The video is a mediation on his minimalist work, asking the question of what it takes to make an image recognizable.

One pixel, if it does its job right, doesn’t have a lot of power. It’s the pixel on your computer screen that goes dead — that’s the pixel you’re going to notice. You’re going to notice the pixel that isn’t there. It can’t get any simpler than one pixel.
