The creative designer from Frankfurt, Peter Schönwandt, creates "pixel pictures" of a special kind, because his colour elements are made up of the individual keys of old computers. All of the keys had a life before they became pictures. Faded by UV rays and worn down to different degrees they are silent contemporary witnesses with symbolic value. Countless pairs of hands have pushed, pressed and touched them in order to write programmes, assessments, messages, emails, important and trivial, permitted and forbidden things. The motives of the pictures remind the onlooker of the time when computers were more analogue, more comprehensible and when one saw the pixels that the computer games were made out of.
