A classic theme in painting is the so-called Panoramic painting, an all-compassing view of a subject. It might seem a rather traditional form, but it inspired Eboy to create something similar for a recent exhibition in Barcelona: he came up with the Pixorama.

The Pixorama is a complex view of an urban scene, all built up out of pixels. Because of the style of projection (axonometric, stylized computer images), the objects can be re-used, and remodeled. This makes a pixorama more like a living city than panoramas could ever be: the pixorama changes constantly, and is thus not a reflection on the world, but a world in itself.
