Piksel[1] is an annual event for artists and developers working with free and

This years event - Piksel06 - continues the exploration of audiovisual code
and it's myriad of expressions, but also brings in open hardware as a new

At Piksel06 we will expand the exhibition part and build upon the open

vital importance for independent artistic expression in the digital domain.

Piksel06 is done in collaboration with HKS art centre[3] which will be the
main location for this years events. Piksel is organised by BEK and a

Piksel05 :: 'collective code' - artistic program


|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

-- Piksel05 - 'collective code'
-- october 16-23. 2005
-- artistic program online

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Piksel05 - festival for free / libre and open source audiovisual software and
art kicks off this weekend in Bergen, Norway.

The Piksel05 artistic program is curated by Isabelle Arvers and Gisle
Froysland as a collaboration with pixelACHE 2006[1] in Helsinki and Mal au
Pixel 2006 in Paris. Some of the projects will be selected to be shown in
Helsinki and/or Paris.

The program is now online at: www.piksel.no/piksel05

-----

Piksel[2] is an annual event for artists and developers working with
free/libre and open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part
festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for
Electronic Arts (BEK)[3] and involves participants from more than a dozen
countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects,
doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics
of open source.

The development, and therefore use, of digital technology today is mainly
controlled by multinational corporations. Despite the prospects of technology
expanding the means of artistic expression, the commercial demands of the
software industries severely limit them instead. Piksel is focusing on the
open source movement as a strategy for regaining artistic control of the
technology, but also a means to bring attention to the close connections
between art, politics, technology and economy
