    something about the pixel
    There is something about the pixel. It's like it keeps going. Into everyday life, into the world. Modular living, living in a square. Organization, control, systemization. One square can be analyzed for data: color, format, but today remains fundamentally alone (i.e. it takes lots of squares to make a picture.) By today I mean maybe in time people will appreciate more the basic pixel, and both what is shown and obscured in its incarnation. Biological processes inherent in our vision can fill in the gaps, we can build a complex image from one lacking information through simply seeing.

    Complex commands can be aliased, libraries created, archives compressed, and a single unit of data can, at the whim of the user, unfold to reveal a veritable cornucopia of information. While we sleep, and our computers lurk in the shadows, updating, downloading, uploading, fulfilling the tasks we assign, throughout the time that our presence is known online at social websites, through email accounts, gaming accounts, is this an extension of ourselves?

    Does it make us "immortal"?

    Or, maybe, are these manifestations an extension of the network itself, independent completely from their originator? Just because we tell our computer to do something doesn't mean we are the ones doing it, necessarily. Or perhaps it does. I get confused.
