THEME 2005 : DOT ORG BOOM

* The Boom that happened when the media wasn't listening *

The years around the turn of the millennium were the glory days of the dot
coms. New media industry promised a shiny future and acted as a platform
for a great gamble which involved fantastic sums of real and virtual money.
These days seem like a distant past when one listens to the news today -
reports of downsizing and fear of economic depression have replaced the once
optimistic views of the future.

Hidden from the radar of the mainstream media, another boom has been
silently growing and gaining a stronger position in the development of
media, technology and culture. Dot Org Boom is the non-profit, cultural
version of the dot com boom. It brings together voluntary efforts of a
massive amount of individual people and is based on the ideology
of sharing instead of the ideology of owning.

PIXELACHE SUBTHEMES

PixelACHE festival program will be based on a new structure this year. In
addition to the program which is based on the annual theme (Dot Org Boom),
we have decided to include some additional program categories. These
categories are:

- Experimental sound & interaction and electronics
- VJ culture
- Interactive and participatory cinema
- Grassroot networks and politics of media / technology

The projects in these categories do not necessarily have to be related to
the Dot Org Boom theme - we are interested in all kinds of innovative and
experimental projects. In the same way as before, we also take into
consideration project concepts which are still in the early planning stage.

PIXELACHE WORKSHOPS

PixelACHE festival will feature several workshops organized together with
both local and international collaborators. Currently confirmed workshops
are the particle/wave hybrid radio workshop, PixelACHE goes Television
workshop and VJ culture and audiovisual performance tools workshop.

particle/wave hybrid radio workshop explores the interface between the
creative traditions of terrestial radio broadcasting and emerging practices
of internet radiomaking. particle/wave rethinks community radio practices
through distributed and participatory networks of sonic exchange, open
content models and new radiomaking tools. It examines the dual nature of
radio as wave/packet, network/sound, transmission/reception. particle/wave
is coordinated by Sophea Lerner and organised in collaboration with Sibelius
Academy, Centre for Music & Technology.

VJ culture and audiovisual storytelling workshop explores the connections
between VJ culture, filmmaking and theatre. The workshop tutors include
theatre directors, audiovisual designers and participants from the piksel04
event (www.piksel.no), an annual workshop which specializes in developing
open source audiovisual performance software. The workshop also connects to
the PixelACHE goes Television workshop.

Pixelache goes Television workshop will search for new and fresh approaches
to an old medium. The local television channel called Dina in Arabia
district of Helsinki is open for projects to be broadcasted. The area of
Arabia is the Art and Design campus of Helsinki, consisting of four design
schools and a Jazz academy. Most of the residents of the area are closely
connected to art, design and entertainment industries. The projects for Dina
channel during Pixelache 2005 are expected to push the boundaries of
traditional television. The workshop will be hosted by Teijo Pellinen,
lecturer of interactive television production at University of Art and
Design Helsinki.

PIXELACHE ARTIST RESIDENCY
