"Plexi-Pixel" is an interactive installation which the user can physically manipulate acrylic transparent cubes to design and play an abstract dot-based animation. Through the interaction, a conceptual process of making animation becomes a tangible process.

The user can place the acrylic cube into any 9 slots situated on Plexi-Pixel to start creating an dot-patterned animation. Upon creating a desirable frame for the animation, the user can hit the "record" button to record that frame and continue on creating more frames to complete the animation.

After a while with enough recordings of frames, the user can then press the "play-back" button to play and enjoy the absract animation which the user has just created through the process of recording.
