Hackteria & Bad Lab

Hackteria / BadLAB
with the collaboration of Kiyoshi Yamamoto.

Engineering is also affecting to molecular biology, posing new ethical challenges that artists investigate through DIY bioart methods. International DIY bio networks and communities encourage the collaboration of scientists, hackers and artists to combine their expertise. Piksel is inviting the main artistic DIY bionetworks worldwide, to establish a collaborative interaction with local artists. Piksel Fest Spill invites the audience for interesting interactions through a DIY or die – Plant Printing Workshop and the Worship – Dinner Performance.

11th of June Worship – Dinner Performance
HackteriaLab & QWAS | Migrating Dialogue
The Performance is based on an exchange of food, gesture, rhythm and sensuality threw online meeting tool like zoom, jitsi, skype, etc. It is a tangible stretch towards how sensuality is perceived in the digital realm threw media.

Worship is a dinner performance created by Maya Minder in collaboration with Almaty based artists Dana Iskakova and Takhir Yakyharov. The Performance is based on an exchange of food, gesture, rhythm and sensuality threw online meeting tool like zoom, jitsi, skype, etc. It is a tangible stretch towards how sensuality is perceived in the digital realm threw media. Elements of #asrm (autonomous sensory meridian response) the tickling sounds of whisper or crumbling paper, walking on snow or stroking hair combined with the elements of new media trend of #mukbang (Korean word for food space) the eating in front of audience recorded with detailed sounds, is probed and performed during an mutual dinner happening. The audience is invited to partake or just to relaxe and concentrate on chatter and talk during the food. People are served with umami rich food, so to give a physical layer of sensual perception emphasized threw food and audio-visual experience.

13th of June Workshop DIY or die – Plant Printing
HackteriaLab & BadLab & Kiyoshi Yamamoto.
You can attend physically at Studio 207 in Bergen or online. Inscription is necessary. We will send you the instructions on equipment and materials you need to follow it online and how to join us.
To attend please send us an email to: info(at)piksel(dot)no
At the Studio only 5 persons.

DIY or DIE Is an transdisciplinary workshop on the topic of coloring fabrics with wild herbs. The toxic impact of the textile industry is the starting point of this workshop. Together we will learn the old technique of dyeing with natural dyes that we find in our neighborhood. The Workshop will be held mutually in Bergen, NW and Zurich, CH under the guidance of a local assistant and threw a virtual meeting with the BadLab project based in Zurich and working at the Theater house Gessneralle during the Naked Transition Project. We will dye fabrics of silk and cotton ourselves, go foraging for wild herbs and work with poisonous substances in small quantities – poisonousness is always a question of dose (Paracelsus) – investigating the toxic side effects of the textile industry.

This workshop is a lot about the playful approach of learning and unlearning, we will follow the art of dyeing by means of DIYbio methods and old knowledge about plant dye and natural coloring. We use plants to dye fabrics and create unpredictable design and patterns. In the framework of the theme of the exhibition „naked transition the aspect of empowerment by DIY and community based work is celebrated threw the moment of liberation – Just do it and Do it with Others. Embroidery hoops stand as a symbol of the time we save, which we take as free time by growing beyond the collective stick tradition of manual work, no longer embroidering the fabric with rules and slogans, but use nature itself, its signs leaves to create traces of stories.

Participants: Paloma Ayala, Lisa Biedlingmaier, Lucile Haute, Anne-Laure Franchette, Corinna Mattner, Maya Minder, Les Plants Sorcière.

Hackteria is a global network active since 2009 of people practicing DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others) biology, with a focus on art, design and interdisciplinary cooperation. Its goal is to allow artists, scientists, cooks, farmers, philosophers and hackers to collaborate and test various biohacking and bioart techniques, outside conventional settings such as academic laboratories and art institutions. http://hackteria.org

BAD LAB project is a collective laboratory of interdisciplinary ideas and practices around plants. BAD LAB deals with the politics of the invisible, plant migration, the resurgence of oppressed and marginalized feminine knowledge, the creation of solidarious ways in which to narrate space that include rural, indigenous beings, and biota, digging up lost and old recipes around healing and culinary, healthcare and colloquial practices.

QWAS – Migrating Dialogue
The project QWAS – Migrating Dialogue is a transcultural collaboration between the Zurich University of Arts (ZHdK) and the Eurasian Cultural Alliance (ECA) in Almaty, Kazakhstan.The project was launched in 2017 and has so far encompassed two student exchange programmes (for which participants travelled from Zurich to Almaty by train) and two e-learning seminars; with exhibitions taking place simultaneously in both cities.

QWAS was created by Rada Leu and Peter Tränkle. The project is kindly supported by the framework of the International Hub Arts for Change – Arts and Design in Social Processes of ZHdK. https://www.qwas.ch/

Fri Kunst

FRI KUNST – en feiring av kunstnerisk ytringsfrihet 2.- 8. mars 2020

FRI KUNST er et nettverk av kunstnere, kunst- og kulturinstitusjoner og -organisasjoner.

Vi står sammen for å bidra til at kunstnere og kunstinstitusjoner – i alle land – skal kunne skape og utøve sin kunst fritt, uten trusler og forfølgelse. Dette er en grunnleggende rettighet og forutsetning for et fritt og demokratisk samfunn.

Den kunstneriske friheten er stadig mer utsatt og truet i verden. Vi kan ikke akseptere at kunstnere og kunstinstitusjoner settes under press av politikere som er uenig i budskapet, virkemidlene eller formen på kunsten. Politiske myndigheter skal ikke overstyre uavhengige, kunstfaglige beslutninger.

Vårt mål er:

– å handle aktivt og solidarisk når kunstnere utsettes for sensur, forfølgelse og trakassering,

– å bidra til økt oppmerksomhet og bevissthet i samfunnet om å ivareta den kunstneriske ytringsfriheten,

– å bevare kunstens autonomi – gjennom forsvar av «armlengdes avstand»-prinsippet i kunst- og kulturforvaltningen.

SIGNAL TO NOISE, Curator: Tincuta Heinzel Exhibition program 2019 Piksel Studio 207

Official opening 24th of May from 19:00 – 23:00

Exhibition dates: 25th of May – 16th of June (Mondays closed)

Opening hours: 15:00 – 18:00

“I remembers the radio broadcasts from London during World War II and Norway’s king stiffening the resolve of his subjects under German occupation. ”
Judith Haaland, 98

The Paraset (Paratrooper radio set) was one of the most notorious of all the transceivers used by the partisan clandestine radio operators during WWII. Often transported in food baskets, suitcases, and other obscure places, it was used for clandestine radio communication primarily in Norway and Europe. The equipment is known as the “Paraset” because it was dropped by parachute for field agents. A fascinating piece of history.

With this exhibition Piksel wants to make an homage to the radio as a device and also to the importance of the listeners. In a historical moment where the FM analogue radio has been shot down and there are voices that claims that “Norway is not prepared for this.” and “Of course there is a lot of nostalgia in radio. That’s one of the reasons this switch is so controversial.” Piksel wants to bring some fresh air doing both, recalling the analogue radio and bringing new low-cost digital technologies to the people, radio-makers and emitters.

SIGNAL TO NOISE
One of the well known examples of Victor Papanek’s “designs for the real world” is that of a radio receiver for the third world. Produced from very simple, “cottage” like materials, such as an used juice can, paraffin wax and a wick as power source, the radio was non-directional, receiving any and all stations simultaneously. “But, as Victor Papanek will comment, in emerging countries, this was then of an importance: there was only one broadcast (carried by relay towers placed about fifty miles apart”. And, as Papanek continues, “It was much more than a clever little gadget, constituting a fundamental communication device for preliterate areas of the world. After being tested successfully in the mountains of North Carolina (an area where only one broadcast is easily received), the device was demonstrated to the Army. They were shocked. “What if a Communist”, they asked, “gets to the microphone?” The question is meaningless. The most important intervention is to make information of all kinds freely accessible to people.”

This story of the non‐expensive, locally adapted produced radio receiver is the starting point for an exhibition and a workshop which deals with different aspects of radio broadcasting: From the way a radio receiver and a radio transmitter are produced to radio infrastructure, and from the delivered information to the means of questioning its accuracy and validity. The exhibition will consider a historical perspective, but will mostly bring into discussion researches related to the present forms of radio infrastructure and radio phenomena, as well as strategies and tactics of radio‐based interventions.

Repertories of (in)discreetness
Tincuta Heinzel & Lasse Scherffig

Largely used during the Soviet Revolution, the “new” communication mediums of the beginning of 20th century’s played an important role in the Soviets’s propaganda strategy during the 1917‐1918 revolution [3]. The same strategy was equally adopted during the installation of the communist regimes in Eastern Europe. The policies at the time have encouraged the production and the acquisition of radio devices by a large number in order to ensure the impact of the propaganda, while in the same time, the content of the broadcasting was subjected to a strict control.

Using this infrastructure, the USA and their Western alliances were trying to counter the communist propaganda. The creation of Radio Free Europe aimed to deliver “truth” and “objective” information. In the same way, radio phenomena (like interference) were used as technical interventions.

Repertories of (in)discreetness project has its starting point in the archives of Radio Free Europe from the Open Society Archives in Budapest. It questions the act and mechanisms of archiving “the Other”, with a focus on the European “East”. The project discusses the ways in which information is collected and transferred, the ways in which the East has gained an epistemic body through refraction. Thus we would like to point out the relation between nature of the information, the production of knowledge and its reception.

Radio Free Europe is considered unique in the annals of international broadcasting: acting as surrogate domestic broadcaster for the nations under Communism. It also relied on local official media and informal news in order to broadcast what was considered objective information. Due to their wish to outline an exhaustive portrait of the world behind the Iron Curtain, Radio Free Europe Archives give way to a series of questions:

What did the archives not capture and what rests uncatalogued and unverified? And, if something was indeed captured, how was it transformed through archiving? What parts of this composite portrait sketched by Radio Free Europe still survive today? And is this portrait only a mirror image resulting from the media war between East and West? By raising these questions, our project looks to divert and to put into a sensible perspective the act of collecting, organizing and using information, in order to question the nature of the information itself.

∏‐Node Platform

Fig 5. ∏-Node Installation, Orleans (2015).

∏-Node is an experimental platform for hybrid Web/FM radio-phonic composition. As a multi‐dimensional radio infrastructure platform, ∏-Node explores the narrative, involves participation, and imaginary possibilities of radio through the use of both historic and new, digital technologies.

∏-Node aims to explore the many dimensions of radio’s format and diffusion: its physicality (ether, radio waves, and the electromagnetic spectrum), its spatiality (bandwith, frequencies), its infrastructure (network of radio receivers/emitters), its methods of creation and editorial content management (programming boards/teams, recording studios), its methods of metadata reception (RDS/SDR), its history (radios libres and pirate radio movements), its legislation. Most importantly, ∏-Node also wishes to examine radio’s future at a time when everything is moved towards “the digital”.
The interconnectedness of these various dimensions, tools, and networks allow for the establishment of a decentralized and hitherto unseen diffusion structure, where each of the network’s nodes serve to both receive and diffuse information. Such a structure creates a break with the classic one-way radio format, substituting it with a horizontal peer‐to-peer model that creates room to play with new potentials for multi‐ diffusion and superposition, as well as room to rethink the radio network’s topology.

Embodied RF Ecologies
Afroditi Psarra

E-textile installation and sound performance

Following my quest to embody the invisible transmissions that surround us, in this wearable I explore the use of an IC mixer circuit to down convert the emissions from the NOAA weather satellite and make them audible. By continuing my research into textile antennas and fractal geometry as a means to detect radio-frequency (RF) transmissions, I aim to speculate about the body as an agent of power in a post-capitalist world, and to re-interpret transmission technologies through handmade crafting techniques.

Elektrotekstil! Utsmykk klærne og tilbehørene dine med LED-lys!

Elektrotekstil workshop er en praktisk og teoretisk workshop hvor du lærer å skape og utsmykke klær og tilbehør ved å fremstille myke og fleksible elektriske strømkretser.

Deltagerne vil bli kjent med konseptet «teknologiske klær», og innføres i grunnleggende elektronikk. Vi vil sette sammen elektriske strømkretser fra grunnen av, og vi vil lage kreative prosjekter hvor vi utstyrer klær og tilbehør med materialer i stand til å bære elektrisitet.

Barna vil lære hvordan man kan bygge elektrisk resistans og myke av/på-knapper inn i stoff, å lage strømførende tråder for lys- eller lydinstallasjoner, og hvordan man kan utstyre klær og tilbehør med LED-lys!

Electrotextile workshop is a practical and theoretical workshop aimed at the making, remixing and intervening of accessories and garments through the manufacture of soft and flexible electronic circuits.

The participants will approach to the concept of wearables or “wearable technologies” and to the basic notions of electronics. To this end, circuits will be prototyped and creative projects will be developed by mixing textiles and materials capable of conducting electricity.

Kids will learn to make resistances and soft switches with cloth, felt, thread for lighting or sound applications and they can customize your clothes or accessories with led light.

Using the learning methods Do It Yourself (DIY) and Do It With Others (DIWO).

Press Note PIKSEL16 ZERO Level

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level
elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi
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.

Facebook is not internet

Facebook is not internet
In my last visit to Mexico I realized wifi connection was all over the city (a city of 22 millions of people!) wow, that was a great thing! The surprise was yet to come, the internet connection only permitted to browse through facebook, if the info is not in FB then you can not access.

Yes, we all know about it but, did we experienced that raw news beating right in our nose? Not me, at least.

Then I realized that FB is taken all our content (yes, we all knew that), all our videos, all our discussions (impossible to trace or search), all our pics (which becomes just a number in the FB data base and are impossible to trace either, not even the author or anything) and the worst of it: you can not make advanced searches in FB content, cause it is awful. Of course soon, Mark will make a good search engine, then we all be captives forever.

Meanwhile our webpages languish, our pic galleries are not visited anymore, good bye to our statistics visitor numbers, etc. And see who is the one getting advantage to all our followers? Yes, FAcebook.

So, this is a test to keep updating our pages, and hopefully to recover our visitors to our pages and to our content. Let’s see what happens.

Funware Residency: Naked on Pluto by Dave Griffiths, Aymeric Mansoux and Marloes de Valk

“You are 4.3 billion kilometres away from the nearest human, what would you like to do?”

Naked on Pluto is a text-based multiplayer game on Facebook. You are stranded on the planet Pluto, naked, alone. Your world is empty except for fragments of data, objects relating to your past life on social networks – but seen through the distorted lens of the game world. You can explore this world, at first alone and later in the game you’ll be able to invite and interact with friends. You can add and manipulate objects you encounter, interact with others and bots. Once you enter deeper into this world and web of data, you become aware of increasing complexity, characters appear you may recognise – are they friends or animated bits of data? Information is substituted and modified in subtle ways. Is it possible to remember what was ever real in the first place?

The game explores the limits and nature of social networks from within, slowly pushing the boundaries of what is tolerated by the companies that own them, carefully documenting this process as we go. Story and play are combined with an investigation on how exposed we are on social networks, and how our data are being used. (continue reading…)

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.

    “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.
