PIXPONG - Paint Bomb

Now visible on the 16 x 24 pixel light-matrix on the "Kennedytower" in skyscraper-city Eindhoven, my animation for the Pixpong project. 16 x 24 pixels is even less than the screen on your mobile phone from 6 years ago.

LIGHT BOMB / PIXPONG Eindhoven from Jeroen Erosie on Vimeo.

The theme was "light" and reminded me of paint-bombs used to throw at office buildings that are made of lightbulbs. So the white spots are meant for the building, the black "light bombs" were meant to be against the light matrix. It plays with my mixed feelings about the city-marketing of Eindhoven "City of Light", or, marketing in general.


STAAT VAN DIENST heeft eindelijk de website online, ga nu kijken, want veel te zien!


For sure this guy is into pingpong but he also knows a thing or two about letters. After doing a FULL COLOR spraypaint alphabet in 1992, Phet 15 ( a.k.a Freaky "In Eindhoven we have a hall of fame too, but there is almost no room left") did another alphabet, this time a digital one. And it's even possible to use it, download it here. So fly!

Alpha and Omega, 1992. Check the full alphabet here.

So fly, 2010.


Sweet pingpong table from Husk Mit Navn. How much more sporty can art in public space go?
