From NSA to DNA

From NSA to DNA

NORTH – Creative Network is a response to the unstable situation of this moment, which requires constant and rapid changes in culture and art sector finding new, innovate solutions for more sustainable future. Past years, new media artists have developed and expanded their field of interests far beyond the so-called “new media” borders. They are engaged in sustainability issues, looking at them from different perspectives – social, cultural, environmental and technological. NORTH Creative Network (NCN) – for open innovation and cultural exchange will be developed by project partners from Latvia, Iceland and Norway in a result of the project activities, taking place in all three countries. The project mission is to contribute towards sustainable culture development by designing and building more accessible routes into the sector of creative industries.

Pikslaverk is an electronic art festival dedicated this year to art and science. Pikslaverk opened with Anna Fríða Jónsdóttir‘s performance based on data from earthquicks in the glacier Bardarbunga. She was accompanied by the bassist Haraldur Ægir Guðmundsson. Other artists participating in the exhibition are Raits Smits, Ragnar Már Nikulásson, Olga Kisseleva, Gisle Frøysland, Maite Cajaraville, Hrund Atladóttir and Katla Rós. There will also be display of photographs from the geologists Hrafnhildur Hannesdóttir and Snævarr Guðmundsson as well as Frederick Howell, Jack Ives, Ólaf Magnússon, Helga Arason, Ingólf Ísólfsson, Tretow Loof and danish surveyors from early 20th Century.

Pikslaverk festival was organized in connection to the workshop Melting on Ice which took place in Reykjavik during May 19th to 21st. Melting on Ice workshop was a series of lectures and a fieldtrip to the glacier Sólheimajökull. The workshop and the festival are part of a collaborative project called NORTH Creative Network – for open innovation and cultural exchange supported by an EEA grants.

NORTH Creative Network partners are Lorna, association for electronic arts, the organizer of Piksalverk festival, Rixc from Riga, Piksel from Bergen and i/o/lab from Stavanger.

Pikslaverk festival is organized in collaboration with Raflost festival and Raflost workshop at the Iceland Arts Academy.
Project coordinator: Margrét Elísabet Ólafsdóttir.
Assistant : Ragnar Már Nikulásson.


Pure Data Synthesizer OPEN workshop

Servando Barreiro

In this workshop, among other more advanced things, the attendants are going to learn the basic building blocks of a classic synth.

barreiro1
Concretely we are going to study and hack a clone of the beautiful and simple ¨moog werkstatt¨ synth which is an experimental limited edition synth. As it´s name indicates, this is a perfect synth to hack, improve, modify and also to learn about basic ¨clean¨ analogue subtractive synthesis.

PiksteriaLab – Open LAB

PIKSTERIA LAB – OPEN CALL to participants

Bring your own ideas, interests, knowledge and tools.
10-15th november – Bergen Kjott
More info: http://14.piksel.no/

“From 10th to 15th november, PIKSEL14 – be\O/art festival is presenting PIKSTERIA LAB a biohacking lab open to all citizens interested at experimenting new models for knowledge sharing and collaboration building, in the emergent artistic practices related to bio, nanotechnology and science related to Bergen and surrounds.”

**Contents
Open BioElectronix and BioSonification
During this sessions we’ll continue on various prototypes connecting plants to puredata, making sound with fishes, connecting brain-measurements to glitch visuals and generally exploring the possibilities of monitoring the processes of life using open source hard/software.

Water Monitoring
Water monitoring, purification and analysis has been important nodes throughout our activities of the last few years.

Hackteria / Lifepatch Evergreens
You wanna build a DIY microscopy? Or join us for some basic DIY Fermentation or the Art of making Wine, bubble sonification? Join us anytime and we’ll introduce you to some of the all time classics!

8bit Mixtape 0.8 and beyond
The idea was to create a synthesizer from an affordable programmable chip that is playful and could be used by anyone to play the music. 8-Bit Mixtape is using a mathematical expression into a single line of programming code which generates Algorithmic symphonies. In this workshop participants will be invited to identify basic electronic components, soldering the correct way and how to add sound into the synthesizer.
