PIKSEL19 – e/co,li:bre

The 17th annual Piksel Festival for Electronic Art and Free Technologies

– Wokshops.
– November 21-23, Bergen (NO)
– http://piksel.no

Piksel19 is proud to present the workshops for the 17th festival
edition. Ranging from bioart workshops which target environmental and
ecological issues to smart city technotopias and video manipulation
software created for and by artists, all mixed with DIY electronics
and artistic approaches.

"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. In his workshop
“Environmental / Biological sensing using Arduino and other open source
approaches” 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

"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.
