Piksel KidZ – MICROmacro, a Do IT With Others Bio-ART workshop

Piksel KidZ – MICROmacro, a Do IT With Others Bio-ART workshop

9th-13h November – 10-13h | 16-19h
Gratis verksted for barn/unge i alderen 8-18 år for påmelding: piksel20(at)piksel(dot)no

MICROmacro, a Do IT With Others Bio-ART workshop

The microscope is a crucial instrument in biology, since microscopy was invented that has made it possible for human eyes to take a look at the micro world and its complexity.

MICROmacro invites kids to an active and participative experience that merges art, electronics and nature. Using our imagination and creativity and learning about electronics, lens, robotics and hacking, we will construct our own low tech interfaces that will help us to approach and explore the microscopic scale .

In this workshop kids will assemble DIY microscopes reusing laser lenses extracted from laser pointers, DVD, CD-roms, led lights and cardboard. This DIY microscope achieves up to 40 times magnification through a mobile phone camera, enough to explore the micro world around us.

Once the microscope is buit, we will focus in the discovering of surrounding life forms (cells, bacteria, protozoos, fungi, virus), structures, forms, textures. The model is open source and inexpensive facilitating to make scientific experimentation by kids at home.

Duration: 5 day – 3 hours/day
Age: 10-18 years old.
Exhibition: Bergen City

Piksel20 Open Call for Projects!

Piksel20 Open Call for Projects!

Piksel20 is scheduled for November 19 – 22

Dear friends,

this year the Piksel Festival has been waiting to the last minute to release the open call in the hope the Covid rules would relax a bit, mainly regarding the obligation to quarantine artists at arrival in Bergen.

As the festival is approaching, we finally decided to do a double open call.

One is for artists travelling from non quarantine countries who can travel to Bergen. Please check here if your country is in a yellow colour: https://www.fhi.no/en/op/novel-coronavirus-facts-advice/facts-and-general-advice/travel-advice-COVID19/ We are aware that the map can change in the next months.

The other one is for artists (who can not travel to Bergen) whose artworks can be presented either virtually/online (Mozilla Hubs, PikselSavers, online concerts, presentations and workshops) or physically at the exhibition where the Piksel technical team will follow the artists instructions to setup the works.

Adding to the open call, Piksel also invites 1 international artist collective, a “cohort”, from 1 to 3 people, to pass the quarantine time (10 days) together in a residency/house in Bergen. During the quarantine, the artist collective Q10 will develop workshops, artworks and installations or performances. They will be presenting the results over the 10 days through online digital media and window display screens. Once the quarantine time is over, these artists will be able to participate at the Piksel Festival concerts and exhibition with all the health guarantees in place. The QUARANTINE 10 project aims to bring the people together on this dystopian ”new normality”.

Please feel free to submit your projects to anyone of the open tracks: Presentations, workshops, concerts, installations and the Q10project.

We apologize for the short time to present the applications. Deadline EXTENDED to 15th of October.

Please use the online submit form at: https://pretalx.com/piksel20

Piksel20 is supported by the Municipality of Bergen, Arts Council Norway and others.

An online presentation of Authors of the Future, with a focus on the Cinemas Sauvage license. This license shows the pitfalls and fun (im)possibility of coming to an agreement with a bunch of anarchist people who do not want to agree on a rule.
Conventional intellectual property law binds authors and their hybrid contemporary practices in a framework of assumed ownership and individualism. It conceives creations as original works, making collective, networked practices difficult to fit. Within that legal and ideological framework, Copyleft, Open Content Licenses or Free Culture Licensing introduced a different view of authorship, opening up the possibility for a re-imagining of authorship as a collective, feminist, webbed practice. But over time, some of the initial spark and potentiality of Free Culture licensing has been normalized and its problems and omissions have become increasingly apparent. ‘Authors of the future’ is an ongoing research trajectory in which we start re-imagining copyleft together.

Can we invent licences that are based on collective creative practices, in which cooperation between machine and biological authors, need not be an exception? How could attribution be a form of situated genealogy, rather than accounting for heritage through listing names of contributing individuals? In what way can we limit predatory practices without blocking the generative potential of Free Culture? What would a decolonial and feminist license look like, and in what way could we propose entangled notions of authorship? Or perhaps we should think of very different strategies?

Constant is a non-profit, artist-run organisation based in Brussels since 1997 and active in the fields of art, media and technology.

Constant develops, investigates and experiments. Constant departs from feminisms, copyleft, Free/Libre + Open Source Software. Constant loves collective digital artistic practices.

Ars Electronica Garden in BERGEN. Piksel Cyber Salon.

Piksel is an international network and annual event for electronic art and technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organized 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 Cyber Salon is the Ars Electronica Garden in BERGEN, Norway.

Designed by the Mexican artist Malitzin Cortés, the hub hosts the exhibition COPY/PASTE curated by Antonio Roberts, featuring the work of 5 artists who all incorporate copying as a core aspect of their work. The exhibition aims to show that copying is natural, encouraging to re-think the way we create/share/copy and paste.

Piksel is also presenting two performances and two lectures. The duo Antonio Roberts/Alex McLean will introduce us into the Live Coding ALGORAVE; Maya Minder, part of the Hackteria group, expands the DIY Bio Art Piksel program with the “Worship – Dinner Performance”. Taking elements of #asrm (autonomous sensory meridian response) Maya and her online partners explore how to online broadcast emotions through sounds. The lecture “Authors of the Future. Re-imagining Copyleft” by Constant, reflects about authors licensing and creative collective practices, and at last, the curator Antonio Roberts will introduce us to the artists and the concept of the COPY PASTE exhibition.

To attend send us an email to piksel20(at)piksel(dot)no

The workshop will happen remotely from UK and at the Studio 207 in Bergen with Piksel assistance and guiding. You can join us at the Studio in Bergen or online. There is a reduced number of subscriptions. 5 people at the Studio 207 and 15 people online. Inscriptions are needed. For those attending online we will send you the instructions on equipment and materials you need to follow it online and how to join us.

Internet Archaeology for Beginners
Join artist Duncan Poulton for a virtual workshop which offers an introduction to techniques for mining and misusing the web for creative reuse. Attendees will visit the depths of the internet that search engines don’t want you to find, and learn to make their own digital collages from the materials they gather.

The workshop will be using the open-source image editing software GIMP. If you want to follow along with the workshop, please download GIMP in advance here: https://www.gimp.org/

Duncan Poulton is a London-based artist working in an expanded form of collage, spanning digital video and image assemblage. Itinerant in nature, his work is currently preoccupied with notions of circulation, digital waste and the copy, as he acts out an ongoing remediation of our increasingly connected world. Working exclusively with found content, his digital works evoke a new visual culture of constant juxtaposition, ambivalence towards images and the collapsing down of history and meaning engendered by the internet. He has shown extensively in the UK and internationally in South Korea, USA, Greece, India, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Russia and New Zealand.

    For the first time, the Critical Engineering Working Group are opening their workshops to the online realm. It is a unique opportunity to join Danja Vasiliev and Sarah Grant this Friday and Saturday for the hands-on workshop using Hotglue. On the 10th and 11th of December Bengt Sjölén and Danja Vasiliev will work together again to lead the workshop Selfhosted. Join us sending an email to piksel21(at)piksel(dot)noWeb-pages made with HOTGLUE never look the same - each page is a new creation of its author.Hotglue by Critical Engineering Working Group / Danja Vasiliev and Sarah Grant3-4 December 2021 – 15:00-17:00 hours.piksel.no/2021/05/19/hotglueBuilding websites using Hotglue is fun – and a great, hands-on way to learn about visual design, markup language and hyper-links that power the web. But to do so, one – more so than ever – needs proficiency in the language of the web (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) in order to participate.Hotglue is a FOSS “What you see is what you get” editor for the web. At the workshop a free-to-use grass-roots service Hotglue.me will be used to allow quick hosting of webpages.HOTGLUE Content Manipulation System is a unique tool for DIY web-design and Internet samizdat. System design is based on several fundamental rules primarily aimed at preserving visual homogeneity between editing and viewing modes. This structural transparency of HOTGLUE UI permits its users to disregard any separation of Content and Design and /ultimately/ to remove Design as such from their creative practice.Danja Vasiliev and Gottfried Haider believe that modern web-users shall be given an easy yet powerful, online (in-browser) authoring tool for making exciting, personally distinct and otherwise odd web-pages. Page contents suddenly become something more then only text blocks and images; user begins to construct web-pages as multi-layered collages where textual is visual and vice versa. Web-pages made with HOTGLUE never look the same - each page is a new creation of its author. ... See MoreSee Less

    “Samizdat: I write it myself, edit it myself, censor it myself, publish it myself, distribute it myself, and spend time in prison for it myself”, Vladimir BukovskyThe term ‘samizda’ was coined as a word game by the Russian poet Nikolai Glazkov in the 1940’s. He included the note ‘samsebiaizdat’ (self-published) in the copies he types of his poems. HTML SAMIZDAT is a web creation proposal made directly from the browser, collective, open and instantly visible. Using the web as a support and canvas, it is proposed to create a joint site, a samizdat, through the appropriation of html code and multimedia objects. To do this, we will use the Hotglue tool, developed by Gottfried Haider and Danja Vasiliev, and worm.org.You only need a computer with Firefox browser installed to participate. Programming and code skills are not required.To attend send us an email to piksel21(at)piksel.no. The workshop will be online through a BBB video chat.
