On this occasion, Pixel Lab will examine and collectively reflect on of

the transformations of identities and sociabilities ; the speculation on
the value of social capital in the era of social networks ; the
concentration and centralization of the web in a context of global
surveillance ; the rise of supra-human algorithmic networked entities,

ABOUT PIXEL LAB | LABORATOIRE OUVERT
Within the context of la Gaité lyrique’s Laboratoire Ouvert residency
program, Mal au Pixel has proposed from May 2014 to April 2015, a cycle
of open meetings, gatherings and workshops offering critical points of
view on current, emerging or future technologies. Artist and researchers
have been invited to transmit their know-how during a workshop, in areas
such as liquid data transmission low-tech systems to organic matter
based computers, celestial bodies tracking devices, Tempest based
radios, or even, cybernetic ghosts detectors.
In Parallel, Mal au Pixel and the Pixelache Network have conducted from
2013 to 2015, a cycle of international meetings and workshops. An
initiative gathering five European structures dedicated to open source
and open hardware : Pixelache (FI), Piksel (NO), Pikslaverk (IS) and
Access Space (UK). These collaborations aimed to build and feed a
database of resources and documentation on organizing festivals,
supported, the European fund Grundtvig.
Pixel Lab has been developed as part of a larger EU Grundtvig supported
project called Open Sourcing Festivals, co-produced by five experimental
art, design and technology organizations from the Pixelache Network and
focused on open source culture. Open Sourcing Festivals is a mobile
circuit of workshops and seminars organized across Europe during
2013-2015 by Piksel (NO), Pikslaverk (IS), Mal au Pixel (FR) and
Pixelache (FI). In the process the partners have been gradually working
towards ‘open-sourcing’ the knowledge embodied in their respective
workshops and festival production, in order to share it with a broader
range of users. A database of resources and documentation is under
construction and accessible at http://opensourcingfestivals.eu
In partnership with Pixelache Network. http://www.network.pixelache.ac
With the support of the Grundtvig Foundation for Life Long Learning.
Mal au Pixel is produced by Artkillart
CALL FOR ART PROJECTS
