Event Details

The Pixel Party is an evening of music, food, cash bar, projected animated GIFs, and an interactive assembly of an 8×12 foot artwork.

At The Pixel Party , the Kolaj Fest community will assemble a monumental 12-foot by 8-foot artwork, led by artist Lance Carlson. As you enter the event, you will be handed a pixel in the form of a 3-inch square collage and be invited to place it on a grid. As the evening progresses, an image will emerge. In doing this, we perform in a fullbodied, living, breathing way what occurs in digital space.

Lance Carlson is an Atlanta-based artist with an architectural background. He is a founding member and past co-president of the Atlanta Collage Society and has been a Signature member of National Collage Society. In 2012, he designed and helped implement “The Marilyn Project” with the Atlanta Collage Society. This monumental (8-foot square) work is made of 841, three-inch square collages that assemble to form a giant image of Andy Warhol’s iconic portrait of Marilyn Monroe. At Kolaj Fest New Orleans, Carlson will assemble and present “La Joconde”, a similar project, started in Orquevaux, France in March 2020.
