PixCube is a creative project!

The idea was born in the context of a public art project in Munich, Germany: the  ‘LightCube’.

This commission by the city of Munich  was about creating a special sculpture for a new Kindergarten, something the kids could identify and have fun with. Having  worked with children and young people in many community workshops and creative projects in Germany and the UK, I knew the best way to fascinate children is by challenging their perception.

There’s a lot of fun going on now around the LightCube at the Kindergarten, lots of running, discovering ever new colour blends and trying to find out how it all happens. The idea to use glass or Perspex to display images and make them appear and disappear became very popular, it was granted a patent and became a business idea. Now we have a range of four sizes, from very small to very big, from the size of a keepsake to a large site specific installation.

The PixCube is the ideal size for your home display. With its way of changing its appearance depending on one’s viewing angle, the Pixcube is an invitation to play and experiment with light, colours and images. Start your own art project and show case it inside this little square shaped ‘crystal ball’: the magic photo cube.

 In the ‘how to’ section of this website you will find instructions that get you going with your own ideas. Select your favourite images in your phone, print them out and insert them into your cube. Combine personal photographs, poems, drawings and see what happens. Watch them switch and blend as your PixCube slowly revolves on its turn table. 

PixCubes add to the atmosphere in your home. Bring a twinkle into a corner with this little gem, create a focal point in in your lounge! The included LED light illuminates the cube, creating a little splash of colour and movement. Your PixCube will breathe life and inspiration into your home

You can create your own family album inside this new photo cube: set it up at eye height on a book shelf or a cabinet. PixCube is a fabulous gift for a friend, your partner or your child: imagine being part of your favourite sports team insode the cube, just place your own portrait between your sports heroes! Use the PixCube as a memory cube with photographs of your holiday, display a collection of your loved ones on your office desk or set it up as a portrait carousel of your masters for your meditation. There`s no end to the places a PixCube can inhabit and enhance. You can update the cube anytime with new photos, drawings, poems: just open the lid and insert new pics. Experiment with monochrome colour panels and set them against photographs, try simple patterns or text and see what the line drawings or create your personal time line!

PixCubes are 100% hand crafted, made of solid Perspex in a brushed aluminium casing. They come with the original set of colour panels designed by artist Kiki Stickl for the ‘LightCube’ in Munich, our first large scale cube installed as a piece of public art. Start your own art project and enjoy watching your pictures switch and blend, appear and disappear –

and watch your intrigued guests, hardly believing their eyes!
