#LightHackSculptures by Pia MYrvolD  at Piksel Studio 207

Festspillutstilling Bergen 25 Mai – 24 June 2018
The #LightHackSculptures use of every day “over the counter” electronics as well as cast away digital gadgets that reflect the overproduction of cheap and meaningless products geared toward consumer society.

With the scribbles of electric cables, extention cords, a new kind of anti-aesetics emerge where we usually associate these materials as something we want to hide, but cannot, we surround ourself with them out of necessity.

The sculptures serve as “projectors” both in terms of lighting, lamps, videos and machines that cast light and contrast shadows into the surroundings and as a metaphor, projecting a contemporary reality of global behaviour in production, consumption and electronic waste, here transformed into objects of beauty.

About Piksel
Piksel is a network of artists and an annual event for electronic art and technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free technologies.

Piksel is focusing on the Free/Libre and Open Source movement as a strategy for regaining artistic control of the technology, but also a means to bring attention to the close connections between art, politics, technology and economy.

Piksel Studio 207 is Piksel’s new project in Bergen. A space for experimental media to expose innovative methods for expanding artistic opportunities and new creative tools based on free technologies. Piksel Studio 207 is established in a 130 m2 room where we create an annual program for artists, children and young people, cultural institutions and the general public.
