If you’re a painter, you’re typically limited to surface, whether canvas, flesh, or otherwise. The words “typically” and “limited” may seem strange or out of place here, because how can you paint the air? As a painter, you’ve always painted something. But with the Pixelstick, a dynamic light-painting tool, you can actually create art out of thin air.
When it’s broken down, like the brush of some futuristic Banksy, it’s not all that heavy-duty utopian. It even runs on AA batteries. But with a matte black anodized aluminium body—weighing four pounds with a length of 73″ (or 43″ when disassembled)—the Pixelstick gives the community impression that an artist was somehow sent back in time to save a creative medium.
As a Pixelstick artist, you can control the white balance, brightness, speed, and orientation with software. Plus, thanks to 200 RGB LEDs, you have 16 million colors to play with, rather than some cumbersome first step forward with a curious retreat to the 16-color palette of Microsoft Windows.
Most curious is that you don’t have to necessarily rely on your own brain as the source. You can give the world complex lighting effects for an airy painting that stems from your mysterious consciousness, but you can also recreate images and photographs, so you can host an art gallery of light or toss a famous centuries-old painting on a brick wall with ease.
