Artists struggle to make their own instruments, even if commercial brands compete to give the best features to the sound market, artists have proved to be more demanding. When this happens many of them start creating their own instruments, and share their findings with other musicians at international venues. This is what Piksel is about, an unique festival which requires artists to use only free technologies and open hardware and software to make their live shows.

From 24th to 27th of November, Piksel presents at Bergen the most outstanding audiovisual international performers devoted to this experimental scene. Hosted in several well known Bergen venues (Landmark, BAS), Piksel seeks to incorporate every year new spaces to catch up the Bergen spirit. This year that place is THE MILL. Situated at the end of the bay, this industrial building will open its doors to held the art exhibition and the Saturday night concerts. From 9pm to 3 am.

HALLOGENERATOR, ALGORAVE and Sista Piksel party will close the night events.

24-27 Nov
Bergen, Norway

PIKSEL16 Festival ZERO-LEVEL, elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi.

Et uavhengig blikk på Bergens marine miljø

Fra 24. til 27. november samles kunstnere fra et dusin land på PIKSEL Internasjonale Festival i Bergen. Gjennom konserter, installasjoner, performancer, workshoper og presentasjoner vil kunstnerne dele sine forskjellige innfallsvinkler til vårt marine miljø.

Er fisken vi spiser blitt «femininisert» av forurensing? Hvordan kan vi skape et alternativt kommunikasjonsnettverk i en post-internett tidsalder? Hvordan kan vi samle inn forskningsdata fra havet og lære oss å tolke dem? Kan båter utgjøre et nytt omreisende verktøy for kunstnerisk virksomhet? Er det mulig å lage havgående prototyper basert på nullutslipp?

Bioteknologi er ikke lenger bare et emne for vitenskapsfolk. Også eksperimentelle kunstnere forsker på biologiske, biopolitiske og bioeffektive spørsmål som påvirker samfunnet i sin helhet. Som bevisste samfunnsborgere gransker kunstnere disse spørsmålene og sender dem videre til resten av befolkningen gjennom kunstverk, performancer og workshoper hvor alle er invitert til å delta.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level, ønsker å rette fokus mot biologiske og sosiale aspekter ved havet som et bærekraftig miljø. ZERO (null) som i: nullutslipp, nullavtrykk, nullavfall, nullenergiforbruk, nullforurensning, nullplastikk, nullforsøpling. Festivalen ønsker også å oppmuntre til bioeffektivitet, bioøkologi, marin arv, bærekraftig sjøtransport og kommunikasjon, vann som lekeplass, og sivilt engasjement.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level er en internasjonal festival for elektronisk kunst og teknologisk frihet som holdes i Bergen. Fra 24. til 27. november vil konserter, AV-performancer, utstillinger og workshoper finne sted ved BAS (Bergen Arkitekthøgskole), PIKSEL Studio 207 i Strandgaten, Rom 8, og Møllen på Hegreneset. Kunstnere fra et dusin land vil presentere DIY biokunst, DIY elektroniske instrumenter, visuell programmering, livekoding, workshoper for FM-radio, installasjoner og performancer.

An independent look at the Bergen’s marine environment.

■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

From 24 to 27th of November, artists from a dozen of countries will meet at the PIKSEL International Festival in Bergen. Throughout concerts, installations, performances, workshops and presentations, artists will share different ways to look at our marine environment.

Are the fish we eat “feminized” by pollution? In a post-internet era, how would we create an alternative communication network? How can we collect direct data from our seas and learn to interpret that? Is the boat a new artistic mobility tool? Is it possible to prototype with ZERO-emission?

Biotechnology is no longer just a subject for scientists; experimental artists are also researching biological, biopolitical and bioefficiency issues that affect society as a whole. As conscious citizens, artists raise these questions to the general public through art works, performances and workshops where everyone is invited to participate.

Piksel16, ZERO-level, wants to focus on the biological and social aspects of the sea as a sustainable environment. Zero in the meaning of: zero-emissions, zero-footprints, zero-waste, zero-energy, zero-pollution, zero-plastic, zero-trash. Also Zero encourages bio-efficiency, bio-ecology, marine inheritance, sustainable maritime transport, sea communication, civil society, water as a playground, and civil engagement.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level is an international festival for electronic art and technological freedom in Bergen.

14 October 2016
At the Student Center, UIB | BERGEN
■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
Thanks to all participants!! Great work!

Sushi Roulette is a workshop by Kat Googie Austen and Gen O Fenring – Gjino Šutić commissioned by Piksel as a follow up of a previous workshop, Pikslo Deep Diving, hosted by Piksel 15 and developed together with Robertina Sebjanic and Slavko Glamocanin. The topic of that first workshop was to find out new DIY protocols to isolate micropollutants in Bergen’s algae. We want to thank Kat and Gjino for the fantastic work they have done. Thank Cat and Zack (Center for Genomic Gastronomy) for bringing their students, to all the participants for their work and interest and to KHIB, Universitetet i Bergen and s.NET to make the collaboration possible.

Artists and scientists Kat and Gjino invite us to examine the unseen and hard to detect impact of our increasing use of “hidden” plastic – plastic that we can’t see, like micro beads, or that we don’t (yet) have a narrative of as polluting, such as 3D printed materials. At the workshop, we’ll be refining DIY chemical tests for micro-plastics, looking at fish samples from the local fishmongers.

Over 4 days of activities, starting with sample collection on a field trip to the fish market, participants will go through a process of exploration of these newly developed DIY techniques, to better understand the presence of plastics in the marine environment around Bergen.

The workshop will culminate with a Sushi Roulette afterparty, where through the encounter with real and dummy sushi the participants are challenged to test their reactions to the thought of consuming plastics as
food.

Schedule:
Day 1: Tuesday 11 Oct. | Meet-up at 1st floor Mesanine, Student Center
3pm – 5pm: Field trip. Visit and finding fish at the Fish Market and other fish shops.

Day 2: Wednesday 12 Oct. | 1st floor Mesanine, Student Center

Facebook is not internet

Facebook is not internet
In my last visit to Mexico I realized wifi connection was all over the city (a city of 22 millions of people!) wow, that was a great thing! The surprise was yet to come, the internet connection only permitted to browse through facebook, if the info is not in FB then you can not access.

Yes, we all know about it but, did we experienced that raw news beating right in our nose? Not me, at least.

Then I realized that FB is taken all our content (yes, we all knew that), all our videos, all our discussions (impossible to trace or search), all our pics (which becomes just a number in the FB data base and are impossible to trace either, not even the author or anything) and the worst of it: you can not make advanced searches in FB content, cause it is awful. Of course soon, Mark will make a good search engine, then we all be captives forever.

Meanwhile our webpages languish, our pic galleries are not visited anymore, good bye to our statistics visitor numbers, etc. And see who is the one getting advantage to all our followers? Yes, FAcebook.

So, this is a test to keep updating our pages, and hopefully to recover our visitors to our pages and to our content. Let’s see what happens.

Solar kinetic sculptures

■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

Kinetic sculpture

Recycling, derelict materials, and self-sufficiency are keywords that would emerge in a possible future where new life forms will have to rely on other building blocks than those required for biology. Thinking of plastic being the only thing left for grabs for new life forms has resulted in a series of ‘living’ kinetic sculptures.

These sculptures would act like little sprouts from this extreme futuristic scenario.

The workshop will be run by artist Egil Paulsen. Attendants are invited to create playful little sculptures that move with the help of solar cells. Combine art and technology in a fun way by creating simple poetic machines, which in turn gives way to experiencing renewable energy technology, with movement and animism as aesthetic qualities.

Schedule:
1pm to 5 pm: Workshop: Participants will become familiar with how solar power works, and create art using renewable energy.

Artists’ bios
Kat Austen
http://katausten.com
http://worldflows.net http://opendroplet.org
Kat F Austen is a succession of experiences and an assemblage of aspirations. In the temporal melting-pot of her life so far she has produced work as an artist, an environmental scientist, a journalist, a writer and much in between. As an artist Kat deals with themes of environment, social justice, communities and human relations to digital culture. She creates experiences, stories and playful installations, mixing fact and fiction closely, so troublesome. She wants to touch your heart, mind, soul, body.

Kat is Artist in Residence at the Faculty of Maths and Physical Sciences, University College London. She has exhibited widely, including at Museo Diego Rivera, Mexico City, Kulurbraueri, Berlin, Kreuzberg Pavillion, Berlin, The Crystal, London, Schwartz Gallery, London, Regenerate Gallery, London and Williams Art, Cambridge. She is Head of Research and Design at social enterprise iilab, leading the Open Droplet water sensor project, which was recently included on the Serpentine Gallery’s extinct.ly platform. With this project,
she is focussing on co-design, physically evocative representations of data and community stewardship of water.

Kat holds a PhD in chemistry from UCL and worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge. Her writing has appeared in Nature, The Ecologist and The Guardian, and she consults widely on the intersection of science, art and technology, including as a Futureshaper for Forum for the Future, for the European Commission and UK water regulator Ofwat.

The environment is Kat’s passion, and her interest is largely held by finding intellectual, experiential and sensorial ways of understanding existence in all its complexity. Her work explores the interplay between acts at different levels – individual, collective, communal, municipal, state, national, international – in the context of a global, digitally-enabled society. The aesthetics in her artworks treads the line between naive and polished, messy and sleek, humorous and disjointed. For instance, she drowned a lot of tiny people in a bath to make
a point about social media. Kat has a PADI open water diving license and also licence to be crew on the yacht.

Gjino Šutić
http://ur-institute.org/
http://biotweaking.com/
Researcher, innovator, artist, educator, founder and CEO & CSO at UR Institute & Gen0 Industries

Gjino Šutić conducts research in several fields of science, such as biotechnology & biomedicine, electronics, robotics, computer science & IT, engineering, nanotechnology etc. with a focus on bioelectronics and
biorobotics. His work combines complex electronics and biotechnology, and he often uses artistic representation for the demystification of science and for bringing it closer to ordinary citizens.

Using a DIY approach to biotechnology (biohacking), he designs and DIY manufactures necessary instruments and materials. He invented the concept of “Biotweaking” (improvement of living organisms or their components to exhibit and use their full potential) which fully defines his philosophy and work.

Since 2012, Gjino started publicly displaying his inventions and innovations such as; SRCE, B.O.C.A., MeBUMZ etc., in a variety of scientific and art exhibitions and cultural events in Croatia and abroad. Also, he started teaching as an informal educator in biotweaking. In 2013 he founded and started working as CEO & CSO of the non-profit citizen’s Universal Research Institute UR, where he also holds workshops, teaches and experiments. In 2015 founded and started working as CEO & CSO of Gen0 Industries – for production and development of innovations.
