kid pix

kid pix studio deluxe (1998) is the first computer program i ever used. in 2019 i installed it on a windows 98 virtual machine. i have been creating artworks with kid pix ever since.

during the creation process, i use filters for locating and enhancing interesting pixel structures. i venture deeper and deeper into networks of pixels, and become entangled as an artist with my strange machine. in this technically endless creation process, my role as an artist constantly shifts between initiator and observer. what are the properties of the snapshots that i decide to keep? how long can i follow the trail of pixels before i end up where i started again?

i created a bot which posts one artwork per day on mastodon: ↗
