"So, more than a substance, plastic is the very idea of its infinite transformation; as its everyday name indicates, it is ubiquity made visible... it is less a thing than the trace of a movement." -Roland Barthes
What of the pixel then? If plastic maintains some sort of material presence, a pixel is the ghost of a trace. It is a liquid crystal in a constant state of flux, suspended like a digital spectre- an electronic mirage. The pixelated, screen-based Image is one that carries with it a material history of milliseconds: existing for the infinitely configurable, immediate moment.
