In 2018, BREAKFAST began experimenting with Brixels, a mechanical medium of their own design. These brick-like-objects, which can take on various forms and be made from a myriad of materials, can precisely rotate, making up an array of kinetic pixels.
Pool is an exploration in the call-and-response nature of people’s interaction with water and machines. The individual Brixels collectively mimic the moments of a surface of reflective water. The sculpture translates the human motions above and around it into ripples across the surface.
