Pixels, Modules, Voxels, Cubes? Let us know what we should call our modular pieces!

Pixels is friendly, but perhaps too techy. Bench-lets?

Great idea Dan! Thanks for your input!

Below is an updated diagram of market[scenes]. Our team decided to develop one pixel that's able to turn into a stacked projections screen, clustered to become a stage for performances, and finally arranged for audience seating. We will be developing special treatments for each of the three scenarios. Screen, stage, and seating all-in-one! Three for one deal here at market[scenes]! :-)

It was great to show the community our first prototype of the pixel! During the day, the screens will act as a writable wall accompanying live performances and lectures. At night, the projections will the star of the scene!

I like the flexibility between day and night uses.

Our team tested out one of our pixels with a projector, and it's looking great! Can't wait to see a cluster of them stacked next to each other. Let us know of your thoughts/suggestions!

BTW...the image was a clip from the 2013 Tony performance of Pippin -- which had a great run at the Golden Gate Theatre last year!

We had a very successful meeting with Gray Area SF, a local non-profit organization that combines art and technology to create positive social impacts through various public participatory platforms! Their new space at the historic Grand Theatre in the Mission District is spectacular! We love what they stand for and are excited to be collaborating with them on market[scenes]!!!

Our team is thinking of possible using recycled sails for our projection screens. They are lightweight and fairly transparent. Let us know what you think and if you know of anyone who could give us some scraps to test out!

Our first pass at a prototype pixel for the dynamic stage component of market[scenes]! This joint system is a bit more complicated than we'd prefer, but it's definitely a start of the many different prototypes/configurations to come. Stay tuned! :-)

Picked out samples of Lycra to test out possible projections screens! We're looking for a semi-semi-transluscent fabric that will allow a projection to be visible from both sides. We'll be making a small mock-up to test it out! Let us know if you have any other suggestions and/or ideas!
