The meeting will include a presentation of IDLE so far, an exploration of Piksel Cyber Salon, and end with a small workshop on how to navigate and utilize opportunities available on this platform.

The goal for the evening is to inspire participants to take further part in the project as IDLE mediators, cultural organizations, and artists.

Ps: The event is BYOL- Bring Your Own Laptop (and headphones) !

Inclusive Digital Laboratory for Experimental Art (IDLE) is an innovative, artistic, and participatory project based on a digitally upgraded meeting place, Studio 207 in Bergen. The goal is to make the physical art space Studio 207 available online via Piksel Cyber Salon with the aim that everyone can interact and create new artistic experiences without having to be physically present.

The project started with the premise that social gatherings on digital platforms give a greater opportunity to participate when unable to meet up physically and explores how to open access to electronic and contemporary art in new ways.

To test the preliminary manufactured technology and eventually disseminate the completed tool, we at Piksel wish to put together a team consisting of representatives from cultural/artistic/humanitarian/health organizations or institutions that work with people with reduced mobility physically, socially, and/or infrastructural. This includes actors who wish to include the aforementioned groups in their activities.

As an IDLE mediator, one will:
• Be among the first with user knowledge related to an innovative tool.
• Gain expanded knowledge about creative inclusion opportunities within art and culture.
• Interact with the artists behind IDLE.
• Be able to influence the finished result so that it is adapted to the needs you see as suitable to be met.
• Get arranged use of the Piksel Cyber Salon and specially adapted workshops organized by Piksel.

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.

Workshop
Duncan Poulton working process. Duncan Poulton (UK)
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.
