Piksel19 is proud to present the workshops from the 17th festival edition. Download Workshops PDF program Ranging from bioart workshops which target environmental and ecological issues, the smart city technotopias and video manipulation software created for and by artists, all mixed with DIY electronics and, artistic approaches.

“Urinotron” is an installation that can produce electricity at a local or even micro-local level, from an organic waste, familiar but intimate, the urine. The workshop shows how to build up an Urinotron from scratch.

Cy Keener travelled to the Arctic to deploy RGB light and temperature sensors through sea ice, he is using these open source electronics and data at his installation Digital Ice Core. At his workshop he will train the participants on every DIY sensor that he uses to do this project.

Mapping Smart Futures the smart city technotopias focusing in South Korea and its smart cities as a case study. In the workshop attendants will unpack the omnipresence of technology in the ‘green’, sustainable, and clean cities and by applying Open Source Intelligence tools, citizen forensics and grassroot journalism we want to look at the current state of internet infrastructure in Scandinavia, with a special focus on Norway.

Invisible Ecologies Lab: wind instruments. The Wind Instruments Lab proposes to construct different environmental sensors and explore different sound processes for environmental and meteorological analog data to form a WindSynthLoop, a wind interactive electronic music instrument.

EXCERPT video manipulation software. Visual artists need to screen videos of high quality in many different contexts: from clean video work presentation, single channel video in gallery, a series of video for musical support, audiovisual performance with real time video handling, use of pre-recorded material and real time generated images. Excerpt can do all that.

The workshop Sounding Feet explores how small postural changes of a dancer can be used to control music. From an artistic point of view, this interactive relationship links the musical outcome of interaction to the proprioceptive awareness of a dancer and it exposes to an audience through the auditory modality a dancer’s minute movements that might be visually hidden. The project follows an approach that combines musical ideation, dance improvisation, interaction design, and engineering. Through this combination the development and design decisions (e.g. the characteristics, number and position of force resistive sensors) can be informed by artistic criteria.

Piksel19 is supported by the Municipality of Bergen, Arts Council Norway, Hordaland County, Community of Madrid, Austrian Embassy, Acción Cultural Española, Inaem, Pro Helvetia and BEK.
