Pixel Wall


Created by Tomato, a London-based design collective, Pixel Wall stretches across the outside of the Last Drop Café.

Reflecting on the immersive presence of technology in our daily lives, the wall gives a playful form to the building block of digital images - the pixel. Over 2,000 wooden cubes have been handcrafted to produce light and dark surfaces. Threaded onto steel rods, the pixel cubes can be turned to create patterns, text or images, transforming the wall into a giant message board and artist's canvas.

All 2,000 cubes were handmade in Leytonstone from hardwearing Accoya wood. They were carefully sanded and scorched by hand to create the dark surfaces.
