The movie "Pixel Puzzle Mosaic" presents layers of different time zones of the earth; the never-ending fragmented landscape giving the viewer a textural experience.
The plurality of overlapping images, the tessellation of space are following the 8-bit sound library and the images are manipulated using video effects named as mosaic, pixelate, tile, etc... to connect this way of imaging with various soft wares which produces them.

The video is following the characteristics of Google Earth: the images are not showing a fixed image of the earth, but rather a worldwide network of media in flux, producing endless new experiences of the earth*.

In today’s electronic era the predominant characteristic of this new genre of media is that ‘does not have any fixed finite boundaries ( a pixel* is generally thought of as the smallest single component of a digital image ), which today arrives at the highest levels of digital values: gigapixel, terapixel, gigapan, etc...
A gigapixel image is composed of one billion pixels; and a terapixel image of one trillion pixels: Google Earth's Landsat images viewable as a time-lapse are collectively considered over one terapixel.

GigaPan* Systems combines high-definition images and panoramas with sharing, tagging and zooming capabilities. The software offers a solution for shooting, viewing and exploring high-resolution gigapixel images in a single system.
Under slow internet connection or low computer graphic capacities we see the whole image uploading in small pieces.

PIXEL PUZZLE MOSAIC reflects on this contemporary shifting and fragmented media and reveals their common pattern:
creating a final image from different small parts:
a picture made up of various other pictures (photomosaic) or the PUZZLE which requires the assembly of numerous small pieces.
