■■ PIKSEL PULSE
Piksel is involved in several off-festival activities throughout 2012, both
locally in Bergen and in collaborative projects internationally.
These activities are named Piksel Pulse.
■■ 1. LGRU (Libre Graphics Research Unit)
Piksel hosted Piksels & Lines- the third meeting of this research seminar series in Bergen 6.-9. June 2012. The seminar had particular focus on improvements, interoperability and fringe use of F/LOSS graphic bitmap and vector software, as well as generative software used in performative contexts. We invited artists, programmers, designers and theoreticians from all over Europe to imagine the future of image creation and processing software in collaboration, through four days of presentations, discussions, hands-on workshops, demonstrations and performances.
The fourth LGRU research seminar is scheduled for 27.-29. September and is to be hosted by WORM in Rotterdam (NL).
■■ 2. OPEN SOUND
OPEN SOUND is a European network enabled through the Grundtvig learning partnerships program. Open Sound is coordinated by APO33 (Nantes, FR) and partners include AntiTesi (Palermo, IT), Piksel (Bergen, NO), Granular (Lisbon, PO), Audiolab (San Sebastian, ES), ModusArts (London, UK), and N.K.
