Members of the local communities have a principal role in creating this site-specific object since its artistic content is created by the graphical adaptation of urban folklore. We collected gossips, local stories and urban legends via interviews, historic research, newspapers and spontaneous conversations on-site.
During the day its surface communicates in a subtle and exciting way with modest yet detailed and sensible graphic texture. After the sunset lighting effect appears through pictogram-shaped and sensor-operated glass panels built into the concrete blocks, reacting to tree leaves falling and to pedestrians and animals passing by.
The MUKI_PIX project was created for the first time in Monor, a small town near Budapest, Hungary as one of the winner projects of the public art competition which was part of the urban development project of the city.
