​PIKSELKIDZ
Er du mellom 8 og 18 år gammel? Så sjekk ut våre KIDZ og ikke-fullt-så-KIDZ verksteder!

CITY-GO!
Har du en historie å fortelle om Bergen? Og som som du vil andre skal få høre når de går rundt i byen?
City-go! gir deg opplevelsen av en utvidet virkelighet av Bergen by skapt av DEG!
Velg et sted i Bergen som betyr noe spesielt for deg, og fortell oss hvorfor. Du får spille inn historien din og legger den inn i kartet på appen vår, og når noen besøker stedet ditt vil historien bli gjenfortalt!

CITY SUNS!
Har du lyst å lage en robotskulptur som styres av sollys? Sammen med kunstneren Egil Paulsen vil du få produsere skulpturer som får energien sin fra solen, og omformer denne til kinetisk energi. Kunstverkene som produseres av deltakerne vil bli en del av utstillingen Piksel Kids under Pikselfestivalen, 2015.

CITY WATER!
Er du nysgjerrig på vann og klima? Hva betyr det at vannet er sunt eller usunt, og hva trengs i vannet for at dyr og organismer skal kunne leve i det? På dette verkstedet får du lage dine egne sensorer og instrumenter til å teste vannkvaliteten med, og resultatene blir visualisert i Minecraft! Vi drar til sjøen i Bergen og tester hvordan det går med vannet der. Bli med, og vær en miljøbiolog for to dager!

PIKSELKIDZ
er du mellom 8 og 1 8 år gammel? Så sjekk ut våre KIDZ og ikke-fullt-så-KIDZ verksteder!

Verkstedene er gratis, men med begrenset plass
For påmelding, send email til: tiril (at) piksel.no (merk med Piksel Kidz)

————————————————————————–

Are you between 8 and 18 years old? Check out our KIDZ and no so KIDZ electronic workshops!

CITY-GO!
Do you have a story to tell us about Bergen? Do you want everybody to hear when they walk throughout the city?
City-go! proposes an augmented aurality experience of the Bergen city created by YOU.
Choose a point in Bergen and tell us a story about it. Record the story in a sound studio and attach it to the Bergen map thorugh an smartphone app. When somebody visit the same location with their phone, the stories become alive again!

 

CITY SUNS!
Would you like to make a sculpture that gets alive with the sun?
With the participation of the artist Egil Paulsen, you will produce robotic sculptures whose energy source is the sun. These sculptures make up small engines that convert solar energy into kinetic energy. The art produced by all participants will be part of the exhibition Piksel Kids program within the Piksel Festival 2015.

 

CITY WATER!
Are you a “water curious?”, does a certain temperature and muddy water mean the water is healthy? Or do we need water full of useful stuff for animals to live in it?
In this workshops, you will be “making” your own computer sensors and devices to test the water. Will go to the Bergen shores and test how is the water doing in here. Join us to be an environmental biologist for 2 days!!!

Call: Piksel Remote Hacklab – Experimental Communication System Open Workshop, Venice

Piksel Remote Hacklab: Experimental Communication System Open Workshop,

Free 2-day workshop, Venice, May 28-29th, 12pm-late.

Recent studies have shown that the electrical resistance in soil above a buried carcass has a different resistivity to that of near by soil due to the decomposition of bodily tissue. The body leaves a “real”, quantifiable electrical trace when it is dead. Following this idea that traces of the dead can be measured via electricity it may be possible that these traces can be found elsewhere such as in the electromagnetic field.

In this workshop the construction of various electronic devices which apparently enhance the possibility of communication with spirits both audibly and visibly will be undertaken. Attempts at direct electromagnetic induction from such a vitalist earth to human brain will be made in the construction of a diy earth-brain interface, along with devices such as the Germanium Trans-Dimensional Communication Receptor (TDC) and other EMF detectors, emitters, and amplifiers.
These will then be applied to Venetian decomposing geo-bio canal soup mixes in a final experimental communication system performance.

The workshop is free. Places limited to 10.
May 28 – 29th, 12pm – late.

Pure Data workshop @ Piksel10

Some photo documentation from the Pure Data workshop held in Bergen during the Piksel10 festival. The workshop was held by Servando Barreiro and Arnfinn Killingtveit and was hosted by Piksel and TRAFO in collaboration. The audio is from the jam the last day of the workshop.

During the workshop, the students constructed simple software instruments and effects in pure data from scratch, were shown how to hack existing patches, learned about crude frequency analysis, explored the possibilities of video manipulation in pure data with GEM, made their own DIY reactable (without the projection), and learned about FM and AM synthesis, among other things.

Regnskog @ Bergen Kjøtt

Bergen Kjøtt October 11-17 2010

REGNSKOG: a Collaborative Workshop/Performance/Installation in the Spirit of David Tudor

INTRODUCTION: HANDS DIRTY ART

Over the past few years, a strong reaction against the sterile world of laptop sound and video has inspired a new interest in analog processes, or “hands dirty” art in the words of practitioner John Richards. With this renewed analog interest comes a fresh exploration of the pioneers of the electronic arts during the pre-digital era of the 1960s and 1970s. Artists and inventors such as Nam June Paik, Steina & Woody Vasulka, Don Buchla, Serge Tcherepnin, Dan Sandin and David Tudor all constructed their own unique instruments long before similar tools became commercially available or freely downloadable–and often through a long, rigorous process of self-education in electronics.

DAVID TUDOR’S RAINFOREST

David Tudor, in particular, has become the focus of intense interest (c.f. Leonardo Music Journal 14, 2004). His transformation from John Cage’s concert pianist to an electronic performer and autodidact engineer in his own right is archetypal for the contemporary media artist, who also must oscillate between the creative and the learning processes. His work “Rainforest” also stands out as an exemplary model of the collaborative process within a technically defined, yet socially open system. (continue reading…)
