Join in on Piksel09 day program of workshops and presentations: find out what Open Hardware is, interact with the Terms of Service in Web 2.0 applications, and learn how to make a realtime stop-motion performance using ToonLoop. The ChaosLab workshop enters day 2 at ROM8 and the Hackteria workshop is in it’s third and final day. We end the evening at Tårnsalen with an engaging line-up featuring concerts and audiovisual performances: Listen to the sound of meat, see gentlemen boxing to create code – code that produces sound. And see how strobes can be the controllers for a loud concert.
Arougate is an installation that involves the environnement of the space he is invited to hunt in.
Arougate is a digital beast who hunts information, tracks it, feeds on it, and generally reacts to it. Arougate behaves like a wolf when he eats his ‘preys’ ; no one can disturb him without consequence; the combination of a machinic system with the poetic-modelisation of animal reactions creates an uncontrollable noise activity in a specific place.
Arougate is composed of audio, video, data sensor extensions which enable him to hunt in any situation; the bestial mechanism operates fast interactions on the hunted information which is then divided into two layers: the digestive mechanism of the beast’s digital belly and his swift reaction to hunting in a dangerous steppe. The outcome of these interactions is redistributed in space with the help of video & audio signals, spatialized by different devices (speakers, TV radios, wall projection…etc).
When people invade the digital den, they enter simultaneously the beast’s belly and mind, or rather, a strong chaotic mixture of wires (electrical, networked, metal…etc), speakers, machines (nuxbox), radios and others unexpected objects, where vibrations (light and air) come to crash!
Piksel16, ZERO-level, wants to focus on the biological and social aspects of the sea as a sustainable environment. Zero encourages bioefficiency, bioecology, marine inheritance, sustainable maritim transport, sea communication, civil society, water as a playground, and civil engagement.
