Urinotron, Bio-kunst Workshop | Friday 15th – Sunday 17th of November

Urinotron is a large-scale installation that takes our organic waste (urine!) and transforms it into power. Contribute your urine and then put your feet up as the salts in your liquid gold turn into sustainable pee power. Urinotron combines scientific equipment, engineering skills, reels of electronic wires in an artistic equivalent of an alchemist’s workshop will be producing a different kind of gold.

Friday 15th – Sunday 17th November

  • Urinotron, Sandra and Gaspard Bébié-Valérian(FR)
    Friday 15:00 – 19:00
    Saturday 12:00 – 19:00 – with a break
    Sunday 12:00 – 14:00

The project is declined according to the contexts it is hosted. For Piksel festival, a unic workshop will be organized to build a new version of the Urinotron, collectively made and opened to improvements or inventive skills. As energy is one of the most important stakes of our society, working together around the Urinotron will offer the opportunity to think about other energetic models and why we are flushing such a valuable resource.

The general shape of the Urinotron crosses the aesthetics of alchemy, the assembly of heterogeneous elements such as glass, steel, copper, carbon, aluminium, coal and constitutes a clandestine laboratory within which are assembled tanks, electrodes, batteries, cables. This great whole can be likened to a giant microbial battery, functional and whose objective is not so much to reproduce or improve existing research in laboratories on this subject but rather, through a symbolic and artistic bias, to develop a setting criticism of the technique to test the limits and create, then, a material judgment on the industrial and capitalist context about bioenergies.

The challenges associated with the energy transition engage us to rethink our uses, our consumption patterns and industrialization in our societies. From household appliances to transportation, from the management of public lighting to the optimization of web pages (a google search would be equivalent to a boiling water pot), each gesture is the object of the calculation of its carbon footprint and its cost energy. The hyper-industrialization and the abstract nature of pollution and global warming (micro-particles, gases, spatials and elusive temporalities on an individual scale) produce a shift, a decoupling between the production of energy and its use. The growing intermediation of these circuits plays a role in the loss of consciousness of each person’s place. Yet as basic, unlimited and easily adaptable resources, renewable energies open up a resilient economic model.

The intention of this project, symbolic and concrete, points the balance of power between a dominant, centralized electricity production and a microelectricity produced by each one of us, recyclable, reusable aand sustainable. This form of resistance to this economy in tension can be found outside, also, of the exhibition context, and makes it possible to think the project with a nesting in the public space within which the installation would maintain its specificity but would be connected to common uses, useful and to rethink the public space and its uses.

Hossein Derakhshan – Post-news journalism: Art meets journalism

(Text in Norwegian below)

Why Europe should build its own social platform for news;if news is dying, who will safeguard democracy?; how did the news go ‘fake’? When the media went social. These has been some of the articles that Hossein Derakhshan has been writing at The Guardian and other international media.

Hossein Derakhshan is an Iranian-Canadian writer, who has been defining, commissioned by the Council of Europe, on the theory and practice of what is known as ‘fake news’ together with Claire Wardle. In 2010, Iran’s Mashregh News reported that the ‘counterrevolutionary blogger” had been sentenced to more than 19 years in jail for “conspiring with hostile governments, spreading propaganda against the Islamic system, spreading propaganda in favor of counterrevolutionary groups, blasphemy, and creating and managing obscene websites.1

After six years in prison he was pardoned by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. No reason was given for the pardon.

As Wired magazine reported, Mr. Derakhshan “figured out a way to combine Unicode and Blogger.com’s free tools to handle Persian characters.” This technical advance, Wired said, meant that “suddenly, blogging in Persian was as simple as it is in English.”

Considered a major influence in introducing the blogging concept to Iran, he was a research fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center and is currently a research associate at the MIT Media Lab. His current research is focused on the future of journalism and also on the theory and socio-political implications of digital and social media. His writings have appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, MIT Technology Review, Wired, Libération, Die Zeit, and Corriere Della Sera.

In Bergen, under the Piksel19 festival program, he will be giving a lecture about how the challenge awaiting journalism in the years to come is to reinvent itself around something other than news, whilst resisting the seduction of propaganda and entertainment. He thinks that post-news journalism will revolve around drama. This means journalists should make various experiments inspired by older artistic forms such as literature, theatre, cinema, photography and even music and dance. Innovation in journalism should not only be about business models or technology, it should be also about radically new cultural forms and representation formats.

Hossein Derakhshan will be in Bergen invited by the Piksel Festival, giving a lecture on Friday 22nd of November at the Bergen Public Library. He will be available for interviews.

Pressemelding

Hossein Derakhshan

Journalisme I tiden etter nyhetenes fall: Kunst møter journalisme


Why Europe should build its own social platform for news;
if news is dying, who will safeguard democracy?; how did the news go ‘fake’? When the media went social. Dette er eksempler på noen av artiklene Hossein Derakhshan har ført I pennen for The Guardian og andre internasjonale nyhetsbyråer.

Hossein Derakhshan er en iransk-kanadisk skribent som på kommisjon fra Europarådet, sammen med Claire Wardle, har hatt en definerende rolle når det kommer til å utforme teorien og praksisen bak hva vi snakker om når vi I dag betegner noe som “fake news”. I 2010 rapporterte en av Iran sine nyhetskanaler, Masregh News, at den motrevolusjonære bloggeren har vært idømt mer enn 19 år I fengsel for å ha konspirert med fiendtlige regjeringer, spredt antiislamistisk propagada, spredt propaganda til fordel for motrevolusjonære grupper og blasfemi. I tillegg til å både opprette og drive hjemmesider med svært upassende innhold.

Etter å ha tilbragt seks av årene I fengsel, ble Derakhshan benådet av Iran’s øverste leder, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Noen årsak til dette ble aldri gitt.

Det gikk ikke ubemerket hen da Derakshan oppdaget hvordan han kunne kombinere Unicode med de gratis verktøyene som allerede var tilgjengelig gjennom Blogger.com slik at persiske tegn og bokstaver kunne taes I bruk. Magasinet Wired omtalte det hele som et teknisk fremskritt som plutselig gjorde det akkurat like enkelt å blogge på persisk som på engelsk.

Betraktet som en helt vesentlig figur når det gjelder å ha bragt konseptet blogging til Iran, tidligere forskningspartner ved Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center og for øyeblikket forskningskollega ved MIT Media Lab. I sin nyere forskning har Derakshan imidlertid valgt å fordype seg I undersøkelser omkring journalismens fremtid og de mulige sosialpolitiske konsekvensene av vår tids utstrakte bruk av digitale og sosiale medier.

Tekstene hans har stått på trykk I både The New York Times, The Guardian, MIT Technology Review, Wired, Libération, Die Zeit, og Corriere Della Sera.

I løpet av Piksel19 festivalen I Bergen kommer han til å holde en forelsening omhandlende hvordan journalismens virkelige utfordring på vei inn I fremtiden er å gjenskape seg selv, bygge seg opp på nytt etter nyhetenes tid er over og samtidig unngå å la seg forføre av propaganda og underholdning. Selv er han overbevist om at journalisme I tiden etter nyhetenes fall vil dreie seg om drama. Med dette mener han at journalister burde eksperimentere med eldre kunstformer som litteratur, teater, film, fotografi. Ja til og med musikk og dans. Innovasjon innenfor journalismen burde ikke utelukkende handle om forretningsmodeller eller teknologi, men også radikalt nye former for kultur og presentasjon.

PIKSEL19 – e/co,li:bre 21. – 23. november
Med et mål om å ta tilbake kunstnerisk kontroll over teknologien, lar Piksel deg utforske elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi. Du kan få oppleve live koding, eksperimentere med lyd og interaktiv kunst.

Hossein Derakhshan er invitert til Bergen av Pikselfestivalen, og holder en forelesning fredag 22. november på Bergen Hovedbibliotek. Han vil være tilgjengelig for intervjuer. Ta kontakt med Maite Cajaraville (

Bleep: A visual detour in Synthetic Biology
Aleksandar Bradic
https://bleep.live

Bleep is a new Open Source MIDI-driven browser-based vector graphics live coding framework, and is being used to create a event-specific visual narrative exploring the topic of Synthetic Biology. This visual work is based on the recontextualization of SynBio visual language, as well as the relevant data and research content from the field, to create a high-information-density abstract narrative posing questions at the intersection of biology, knowledge, and computation. The piece represents a kind of a random walk through synthetic, algorithmically generated design spaces, which are controlled and modulated in real-time by muscle actions of the performer. In this way, the work questions the relevance of human action in our increasingly algorithmically determined reality. All code and visual assets created for this work, as well as the hardware controller used for the performance, is entirely Open Source Software/Hardware.

Friday 22nd Nov 21:00 to 03:00

At Østre

Invisible Ecologies
Gabriela Munguía (AR)

http://www.gabrielamunguia.com

Invisible ecologies is the result of a series of sensing and amplification devices of different environmental magnitudes such as wind speed and the process of mineral erosion. From the construction of various open source technologies, a series of machinery articulate different geological natural processes in the form of sound, light and movement. From a poetic and philosophical study on the possible processes of co-creation with nature, I am interested in the metamorphic relationship between scientific representation and artistic creation through technological experimentation.

Jana Jan vs. čirnŭ
Ivan Andre Paulsen, Itziar Markiegi (NO/ES)

Loud, extreme and unrepentant; both čirnŭ and Jana Jan are known for uncompromising and intense live-sets. After being thrown together for the first time at the Bruital Furore festival in 2019, finding their individual styles resonated quite nicely with each other – they decided to join forces again.

ALOES: The Road ((NL/FI)
Alex van Giersbergen, Marloes van Son

http://marloesvanson.nl/aloes/aloes.php

The audiovisual composition ‘The Road’ is inspired by endless bus-trips on winter roads and the ambiguous feeling of being away from home. ALOES moves along an abstract road through a computer generated landscape of ghostly visuals. They translate their travels into melodic soundscapes with self-built digital synthesizers, field recordings and voice. The sound is created using Arduino-based instruments, field recordings, a looper and voice. The accompanying visuals are live generated with custom made software.

Juan Antonio Nieto (ES)
https://pangea-juanantonionieto.blogspot.com/

Juan Antonio Nieto is a Spanish experimental musician. He plays live electronics using field recordings as a raw material. His records have been published on labels as Moozak, Trente Oiseaux, Mandorla, Experimedia, Impulsive Habitat, Plus Timbre, Test Tube, A.M.P., and Luscinia among others. He has won the Radical dB award in the category audio/performance in 2016.

Limit of the Off-limit
Nnja Riot, Lisa McKendrick (UK/NZ)

http://www.listenlisse.co.uk/nnja-riot.html

Nnja Riot’s music is an exploration into the possibilities of instruments, electronics, collected sounds and the human voice. She performs with a combination of instruments, self-built synths and video synths. She has co-designed the Fort Processor which is a stand alone oscillating synth.  Nnja Riot is the solo project of Lisa McKendrick who is based in London and born in New Zealand.

Special event, interactive dance
OECUMENE
Pablo Palacios, Muriel Romero, Daniel Bisig (ES)

https://www.stocos.com/

Oecumene is an interactive dance and music piece that reflects on the role of the individual in the world, expanded through technology beyond the limits of her geographical birthplace or cultural identity of origin. The piece employs an original technology that allows the dancer to interact in real time with lights and a sound reflection of the multidimensionality of the world that surrounds us.

The piece employs real-time analysis of movement qualities, generative algorithms to create musical structures and control the synthesis of sound and light. In addition several types of sensors and hardware have been specially designed for the piece: pressure sensitive shoes, inertial Movement Units ( IMU) and Interactive Lasers.

Crystal Moss Core Force
Noish (ES)

Extreme computer music that explore chaotic and generative territories. Software under linux ubuntu; pure data, supercollider. Hardware: axolot and attack delay. Design of the release by Carlos Valverde and text by Lucia C Pino.

Live electronics sound performance.
Jukka Hautamäki (FI)

http://jukkahautamaki.com/

Hautamäki’s sound performances are microscopic studies into electronic sound picking up electromagnetic radiation and interference from under-hood work lights, electromagnetic sources, coil mics, diy amps, radio waves, fluorence lights,… Hautamäki addresses the concept of “forced” improvisation using difficult interfaces, and turning chaos and trash-aesthetics into instruments of live electronics.  In his live electronics performance practice he experiments with interfacing, by integrating bodily performance with media technology.

Transduction
Matt Spendlove (UK)

http://spatial.infrasonics.net/transduction

Transduction is a performative opti-sonic intervention designed for projection and multi-channel sound. Presented as an abstract animation of visual music, illusory visual and psychoacoustic effects probe perception via experimental psychological processes and kinetic optical techniques. The performance is algorithmically generated and manipulated in realtime via live coding.

SNUFF
Agnes Pe (ES)

https://www.agnespe.com/

SNUFF !! It is the parasitic kidnapping of live radio broadcast to turn it into a single sound matter: no interviews, no news, no music, no announcements, without all those conventions that have been generated around the radio medium. The sound planes disappear.

Oecumene. Piksel19 – e/co,li:bre special event.

PIKSEL19 – e/co,li:bre
The 17th annual Piksel Festival for Electronic Art and Free Technologies, is pleased to announce OECUMENE, an interactive dance and music piece premiering in Bergen as an special event by Piksel19 Festival.

OECUMENE reflects on the role of the individual in the world, expanded through technology beyond the limits of her geographical birthplace or cultural identity of origin.

Oecumene is a piece that explores the creative possibilities of interactively controlling sound and light synthesis models. In this piece, a dancer experience through improvisation the relationships between their expressive movement qualities, and their translation into sound and light entities To relate the qualities of expressive movement of a dancer with the creation of musical and light material, the piece employs real-time analysis of movement qualities, generative algorithms to create musical structures and control the synthesis of sound and light. In addition several types of sensors and hardware have been specially designed for the piece: pressure sensitive shoes, inertial Movement Units ( IMU) and Interactive Lasers. These sensors and systems have been manufactured by the technical team specifically for this production.

The Oecumene is a term that comes from the Alexandrian ideal of Cosmopolis: the world inhabited as a whole, as the common possession of the civilized humanity of free men and women. A concept developed in this creation for a dancer and immersive sound and visual design, in which she enters and interacts with visual simulations of natural phenomena and sonic landscape composed of thousands of sounds coming from multiple places on the planet. The development of the expressive qualities of dance in relation to this tapestry of universal sounds and visuals in constant transformation, work as an organism that mirrors the trans-cultural syncretism of the world that we have to live.

Workshops announcement. Piksel19 – e/co,li:b-re.bel

Piksel19 is proud to present the workshops from the 17th festival edition. Download Workshops PDF program Ranging from bioart workshops which target environmental and ecological issues, the smart city technotopias and video manipulation software created for and by artists, all mixed with DIY electronics and, artistic approaches.
Send us an email if you want to attend to piksel19(at)piksel(dot)no with the name of the workshop.

“Urinotron” is an installation that can produce electricity at a local or even micro-local level, from an organic waste, familiar but intimate, the urine. The workshop shows how to build up an Urinotron from scratch.

Cy Keener travelled to the Arctic to deploy RGB light and temperature sensors through sea ice, he is using these open source electronics and data at his installation Digital Ice Core. At his workshop he will train the participants on every DIY sensor that he uses to do this project.

Mapping Smart Futures the smart city technotopias focusing in South Korea and its smart cities as a case study. In the workshop attendants will unpack the omnipresence of technology in the ‘green’, sustainable, and clean cities and by applying Open Source Intelligence tools, citizen forensics and grassroot journalism we want to look at the current state of internet infrastructure in Scandinavia, with a special focus on Norway.

Invisible Ecologies Lab: wind instruments. The Wind Instruments Lab proposes to construct different environmental sensors and explore different sound processes for environmental and meteorological analog data to form a WindSynthLoop, a wind interactive electronic music instrument.

EXCERPT video manipulation software. Visual artists need to screen videos of high quality in many different contexts: from clean video work presentation, single channel video in gallery, a series of video for musical support, audiovisual performance with real time video handling, use of pre-recorded material and real time generated images. Excerpt can do all that.

The workshop Sounding Feet explores how small postural changes of a dancer can be used to control music. From an artistic point of view, this interactive relationship links the musical outcome of interaction to the proprioceptive awareness of a dancer and it exposes to an audience through the auditory modality a dancer’s minute movements that might be visually hidden. The project follows an approach that combines musical ideation, dance improvisation, interaction design, and engineering. Through this combination the development and design decisions (e.g. the characteristics, number and position of force resistive sensors) can be informed by artistic criteria.

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.
