 - Hardware Politics -

 festival for free / libre and open source audiovisual SW, HW and ART.
 12 -15 october 2006 in Bergen, Norway.
70 participants from 20 countries gather in Bergen for 4 days of exchanging 
art, code and ideas based on practical implementations of free culture.

Piksel is an annual event for artists and developers working with free and 
open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part festival, it is 
organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (BEK) 
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 and open 
source software. 

The theme of Piksel06 - 'hardware politics' - brings in open hardware as a new 
focus area of vital importance in the fight for freedom of information and 
independent artistic expression in the digital domain.
