Piksel 06 Seminar

Piksel er BEKs årlige seminar som tar for seg utforskingen av åpne kildekoder for programmering inne lyd og bilde. I to dager blir det diskusjon, foredrag og praktisk arbeid med programmering i Cinematek-salen på USF. Et "toppmøte" med sentrale programmerere fra hele Europa. ----------------------------------------------------------- Piksel er et initiativ fra BEK og ble første gang arrangert i 2003. Seminaret samler sentrale Open Source og Free Software programmerere fra hele verden for å utvikle felles standarder innenfor videoredigering og sanntids lyd- og bildemanipulering. Se informasjon om seminarets gjester i den engelske versjonen under. 13. oktober kl. 11.00 - 15.00 14. oktober kl. 11.00 - 17.00 I Cinemateket USF. Gratis adgang, men begrenset plass. Send gjerne en forhåndspåmelding til piksel06@bek.no ----------------------------- Two days of seminar, discussion and highly practical interrogation of expanded software and the impact of the executable on necessarily open hardware as a political act. xxxxx crashes into the intent of open hardware, eviscerating software; the blunt realm of the user as cynical economic motif. After Artaud, the CPU (central processing unit) and its double mimes The Theatre and its Double. On the one hand, there is the System or entropic operation of a necessarily cynical machine for living, an atrocity exhibition, on the other hand the specification of an artistic CPU for life coding. The data sheet will be examined as to its operational codes (day one), new (simulation) models will be constructed (day two). Confirmed participants: Wilfried Hou Je Bek, Martin Howse, Jonathan Kemp, Aymeric Mansoux, Bruno Marchal, Otto Roessler, Tom Schouten, Marloes de Valk, Eva Verhoeven, Valentina Vuksic Produced by BEK and ap/xxxxx: ap/xxxxx[1] was founded in 1998 to necessitate the code-terms expansion implied by a growing and politically active free software movement. With wilfully avant-garde intent, and through intervention, performance, staged events, seminars, hardware constructions and readily accessible software, ap/xxxxx examines through live descriptive process software (culture and history), embedding auto-destruction. Software is viewed as substance. Piksel[2] is an annual event for artists and developers working with open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (BEK)[3] 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 open source and free culture. This years event - Piksel06[4] – continues the exploration of audiovisual code and it's myriad of expressions, but also brings in open hardware as a new focus area. Information: xxxxx_at_piksel[5] will take place 11am to 3pm 13 October 11am to 5pm 14 October at Cinemateket USF in Bergen, Norway as part of the Piksel06 festival. Admission is free but with a limited number of seats. For reservation send a mail to: piksel06@bek.no About the participants: *Jonathan Kemp (UK) Performer, theorist, ap/xxxxx collaborator and visual artist, Jonathan Kemp applies the refined instruments of his adoptive stoneworking to excavate the esoteric thought matter of characters such as Emmanuel Swedenborg and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. *Bruno Marchal (BE) Bruno Marchal is currently occupied with refining his supremely elegant, code-based theories of COMP at the IRIDIA AI labs in Brussels. COMP has precise consequences, for example that physics is necessarily a branch of computer science; the implication being that "if you were in a perfect simulation you wouldn't know it." *Otto Roessler (DE) German biochemist Otto E. Roessler occupies the rare contemporary position of a scientific and artistic polymath with noted significant contributions to chaos theory, under his original attractor, and the fresh science of endophysics. His current major project, Lampsacus, proposes a truly free networked informational society. *Eva Verhoeven (NL) The original work of artist and theorist Eva Verhoeven proposes a concise and well defined series of laboratory-style experiments and interventions which elaborate a trajectory from noise/interference within existent (computer) systems towards totally speculative hardware. *Valentina Vuksic (DE) Former student of both essential economics and computer science, Valentina Vuksic explores a highly individual articulation of hard and software mediation; the processes in such intermediate space as action thus implying actors rendered audible through novel intrusion. *Tom Schouten (BE) Artist and independent software developer. He is the author of PDP, an extension for Pure Data, which adds building blocks for image and video processing, and other media oriented applications, tightly integrated to the computer music system which hosts it. Currently he is developing Packet Forth, a stand-alone application / scripting language for media processing and BADNOP, an interactive FORTH compiler for Microchip Picmicro microcontrollers. *Aymeric Mansoux (FR) Since the mid-nineties, Aymeric Mansoux has taken part in many artistic experiments based on the internet and the emergence of networks. Traceroutes, network packets, digital feedbacks and piped logs become a new clay that can be used to develop autonomous artistic processes. Currently an mphil/PhD student at the creative technologies department of the University of Huddersfield, his most recent artistic projects include a residency at the Mediacentre of Huddersfield, a collaboration with Chun Lee within the live electronic music group 0xA, and Metabiosis, a project on non-carbon based pseudo live forms in distributed computing and peer-to-peer networked ecosystems with the Dutch artist Marloes de Valk. *Marloes de Valk (NL) Dutch audiovisual artist, currently based in the UK. She studied Sound and Image at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague, specializing in abstract compositional computer games, HCI and crashing computers. Starting out as a visual artist who played violin, she ended up bringing the worlds of sound and image together by building her own digital instruments in which sound and image are of equal importance, created real-time, simultaneously, influencing and distorting each other. Currently she is collaborating with French artist Aymeric Mansoux on Metabiosis, a project investigating the ups and downs of datapackets living in a world of connected ecosystems. Marloes is part of the Digital Research Unit at the University of Huddersfield.
