Turning Bricks into Pixels
After creating Post It Notes pixel like murals and using balloons to recreate the Mona Lisa, what could be next for Apex High School students? How about turning bricks into pixels?
Using PhotoShop, artist teams created roadmaps that helped determine what color to make each brick. The bricks were then colored one by one till the wall was completed.
The height of the wall was the biggest obstacle. Each mural could only be 32 bricks, or pixels, high. The challenge was to keep the image recognizable using so few pixels.
