subpixel is a subway advertisement upgrade kit.
subpixel is built from laser-cut acrylic, rubber bands, and nine razor blades. In two quick swipes, it transforms a small patch of subway advertisement from a “one-way, unending flow of shit” into an 8×8 grid of pixel stickers, ready for two-way interaction with the public.

Initial tests involved minor modifications to a mainly white poster, using classic icons like the I-beam text selection cursor.
The individual pixels proved just as useful for expression as the negative space.
Keep your eyes open for a single removed pixel as an indicator of a prepared poster, as the grid itself can be hard to see.
