Pixelfest – A Collaborative Artwork

Pixelfest is group artwork project to see whether a group of random people, contributing a single pixel a day, can make a coherent piece of art purely through the influence of the work itself.

Here’s the rules:

  • You can place one pixel a day.You can place a pixel anywhere on the grid.
  • You can overwrite existing pixels.
  • There is no pre-defined subject matter of the picture.
  • No collaborating through the comments.
  • Use your imagination.

Go forth and pixelate.
