The humble pixel, millions of which we see everyday and take for granted, finally gets it’s due in the form of a fascinating short documentary, by Australian animator and pixel artist, Simon Cottee.

Cottee film explores the pixel’s place in our culture, from it’s humble beginnings in videogames to the present day.

Going so far as to even spawn a musical sub-genre, in the form of the increasingly popular chiptune.
