Piksel @ Make Art

By the end of this month, the rapidly expanding GOTO10 collective are organising Make Art – ‘a festival dedicated to the integration of “free and open source” software in electronic art’ in Poitiers, France.

I have been invited to do a presentation of Piksel05 and join a panel about the future strategies of open source in the context of digital art.
It’s very nice to see this kind of events popping up all over the place these days and I’m looking forward to meet new FLOSSminded ppl and probably some Piksel regulars too 🙂

MapOMatix 0.004 [ codename psychogeowiki ]

The MapOMatix project which aims to be ‘A Collaborative Platform For Tactical Cartography’ has been released in version 0.004. MapOMatix was presented at Piksel05 by Yves Degoyon and Chaser, and the technology seems to be picked up by an increasing number of hactivist and artivist projects already. For instance, check out the Piksel map made by Alejo Duque from the S.O.U.P. team covering the different Piksel05 locations in Bergen.

Here’s the full announcement.

David Turner (FSF) on trusted computing

David Turner (FSF) delivered a very interesting and engaged speach about the dangers of trusted computing thursday evening. It’s now available online for downloading as an mpeg video (150Mb).
Among the things he brought up in addition to the DRM threat, was the upcoming GPL3 and some interesting theories about the background for Apples switch to Intel. He also had some critical views on Creative Commons licensing.

Piksel05 catalog online

The Piksel05 catalog was finished yesterday, just in time for the exhibition opening at HKS. Marieke has done a great job putting it all together based on the collaborative gathering of material through the piksel wiki. It’s now available online here: piksel05_catalog_72dpi.pdf

Enjoy! 🙂

Streams from the bunker.

Thanks to Kysucix from dyne.org we now have streams from most of the presentations in ‘the bunker’. Kysucix are streaming directly from FreeJ using a simple webcam,so the image quality is not the best, but you should still be able to get a good impression of what’s going on. More info and links to the stream here: http://www.piksel.no/piksel05/streams.htm.

There’s also a irc channel for remote interaction at: irc.freenode.net #piksel

Piksel05 :: KickstART

Tonight the grand opening of Piksel05 takes place at HKS. We’re kickstARTing from around 20:00 with an audiovisual concert featuring some of the best free software performers around.
Going from hardcore minimalist glitch via cheesy 3d electronica to noisepop polical extravagansa, it should be a feast for a wide range of interests. Anders g. is spinning freeky beats between the acts.
