24-27 Nov
Bergen, Norway

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

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. From the 24th to the 27th of November; concerts, AV performances, exhibitions and workshops will take place at BAS, PIKSEL Studio 207, Rom 8 and the Mill. Artists coming from a dozen countries will be presenting DIY bio-art, DIY electronics instruments, visual programming, live coding and FM radio workshops, installations and performances.

Exhibition “Sushi Roulette” at S.NET conference

Piksel in collaboration with S.Net Conference, UIB and KHIB Bergen presents

Sushi Roulette, a workshop commissioned by Piksel to Kat Austen and Gjino Šutić

Explore plastic pollutants in the marine environment using DIY science
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
1pm to 6 pm: Workshop part 1: Establishing an open source and open hardware lab for DIY biology, chemistry and marine fauna research.
6pm-7pm: Cleaning the lab.
