Pixel 24-byte, 2022

The smallest image in the World.
You might think there is nothing to see, while there is actually a 1 pixel image - the smallest graphic representable on screen.

"Pixel 24-byte" and "Pixel 35-byte" are conceptual artworks in size of 1x1 pixel and in extreme file size that no graphic program, even Photoshop, is able to reproduce. 1x1 pixel is the smallest unit represented on screens, widely used in software and the Web to expand limits and overcome challenges.

"Pixel 24-byte" is the smallest possible GIF image in the size of only 24 bytes and in a resolution of 1x1 pixel. The very interesting thing - due to its extremely tiny size different Web browsers and software display it differently.
