Thank you for visiting our Peoples Pixel Project Page. This year’s project began in January with a call for work open to the entire state of NY. Artists were asked to submit their original videos in one of 6 categories (Narrative, Documentary, Animated, 2020 Rewind, Tunes, and Other). We received over 100 submissions from both emerging and established artists, including many from artists new to the Peoples Pixel Project.
Submitted work was juried by an independent panel of artists and past P3 winners with the top 21 works selected for “exhibition” in our online gallery and awards in each category. For our People’s Choice Award we created an online polling and voting system – we received 430 votes – and announced the winner on May 17th.
Our project this year also featured a series of four P3: Conversations with participating artists. These conversations were moderated by staff, art critics, past winners, as well as a regional Professor of Media Arts at Skidmore College.
We would like to thank all of the Peoples Pixel Project 2021 Select Artists whose work is featured below.
Please note: artists have ownership over their videos. If the source of their video changed, or if the artist removed it from the public domain, the link will not work. All videos were available for the period between April 1 – September 1, 2021.
