Pixi is a digital organism inspired by the complex patterns that exist in nature and questions whether a technical natural phenomenon can imitate the complex aesthetics of nature or interact with it. The Pixi was designed to be self-sufficient; able to survive in a natural environment and similarly to other organisms, Pixi can make their own choices and are also influenced by environmental factors from nature. Equipped with a pulsating light, the visitors can observe only a handful of Pixies and there are no discernible behavioural patterns. However, when they step back and look at them from a distance, the connections in the flock become clear and visible – a group intelligence arises.
