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 🙂

More at the Make Art 2006 site.


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

    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.
