PIKSEL 10: (Un)stable

(Un)stable

The 8th annual Piksel festival for Electronic Art and Technological Freedom

Bergen, Norway

November 18-21 2010


Piksel10 is about to begin.
The festival subtitle (Un)stable, points to the temporarily placed and unsteady constructions – mobile spaces, code in constant development, a globally charged political climate.
The festival is divided into a day program consisting of presentations and hands-on workshops, an evening program of live art performances, and several exhibitions – all on the topic of free technology and art.
The presentations and liveart events take place at Studio USF, and the workshops and festival main desk are held at Flaggfabrikkens new gallery space KNIPSU.

The main festival exhibition is held at Galleri 3,14 and will be up from November 19th 2010 – January 9th 2011. In addition, several artworks are exhibited at KNIPSU and Entree Visningsrom during the festival period.

See the full program schedule, and an map overview of all locations.

Microcodes

microcodes

Pall Thayer’s Microcodes are short code art pieces written in Perl and presented on a website for viewers to read, download, and execute. Each code piece encapsulates tasks performed by artworks such as portraiture or memento mori. They follow on from Thayer’s earlier “Exist.pl”, which allegorized life, death and being using running Perl code.

This is a Romantic use of code, a projection of human experience onto mere material existence. Processes become lives or individuals, network sockets become voices or eyes. And in a Nietschean twist some of the code can be genuinely destructive for data. But it works the other way round as well, demonstrating that meaning can be found in or recovered from mere processes.

The program listings are presented on a modern, neutrally styled, website for download and execution. The code is licensed under the GNU GPL version 3 (or later), so everyone is free to use, study, modify and redistribute it. The use of the GPL should be a given for code art, but far too many artists are happy to take the freedom that they are given by other hackers and not pass it on. Thayer deserves credit for doing the right thing.
