In digital imaging, a pixel, or pel (picture element) is a single point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable screen element in a display device; it is the smallest unit of picture that can be represented or controlled.
Okay, this is true, our background is graphic and thus we used a graphic term to describe our common seed, the origin of all our weird madness about digital creativity, but try to project the idea of digital unit to any media or digital expression, and voilà, that's exactly what we mean.
Pixelminds is about digital creation, whether it is on screen, paper, sound, color, temperature, or even smell, you name it!
A graphic pixel is a color square, the basic dot of our imagined dreams. A music pixel is a unit of sample, as brief as you want, as deep as you want. A recipe for fudge cake will be far more effective and mind-blogging when we achieve to build an organoleptic human interface with smells and taste, and the digital unit will be the scent pixel. Sure there might be better terms, at least more accurate, for all these kinds of pixels, but probably different for each of them. Ideas are welcome!
