Simply put, a pixel is the smallest point that can be represented on a screen, and appears in the form of small squares, dots or lines, which make up every digital image. To pixelate an image is to abstract its appearance by changing, altering or manipulating the image pixel data. For example, expanding or reducing the pixels per inch (ppi), changing the shape of the pixels, or like some pixel artists, building a digital image from scratch, pixel by pixel.

Get involved

Take part by choosing one of the selected artworks from Room 1910, save a copy and get creative with its pixels.

Submit your pixelated artworks to us via the Tate Collectives Tumblr or by emailing

Dealine for submissions: Sunday 31 May at midnight.

A curated selection of your submissions will be screened at Late at Tate on Friday 5 June 2015 in Room 1910 at Tate Britain.
