Architect Christina Augustesen and software designer Ole Kristensen from the IT University of Copenhagen have developed a new design tool for Lightning Designers and a method to test pixels and light formations impact on people.

The installation consists two LED monitores and a software program that controls the pixels in an image or video.

In this video Christina and Ole investigate how many pixels it takes for the human eye to perceive an object.

The research project is an interdisciplinary cooperation between IT University of Copenhagen and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation.
