Friedrich Boell (DE)

Dead Pixel

Electronic treasures turned into surprising installations.

Friedrich Boell uses things he finds, mostly electronic waste, that are brought back to life by making some adjustments.

He got the idea for Dead Pixel

after he found a box of broken cell phone displays on the streets. Friedrich got the backlights of the screens to work again by using electronics that he created himself, turning individual components of light into something that is bigger as a whole.

Friedrich Boell (Wesel, 1982) studies at the KHM, the Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne.
