Piksel21
November 18-21 2021
Bergen, Norway

***Deadline September 1st***
Piksel21 is scheduled for November 18 - 21.

Dear friends,

we are glad to announce the open call for projects to Piksel Festival 2021 in the hope that the Covid-19 vaccinations makes it possible for some artists to travel in November when the festival takes place.

We are aware that the vaccination is not evenly distributed in every country and therefore we will keep the hybrid format and do a double call.

One is for artists who can travel to Bergen. Please check the rules to enter Norway here: www.helsenorge.no/en/coronavirus/international-travels The rules will change in the next months.

The other one is for artists (who can not travel to Bergen) whose artworks can be presented either virtually/online (Mozilla Hubs, PikselSavers, online concerts, presentations and workshops) or physically at the exhibition where the Piksel technical team will follow the artists instructions to setup the works.

Please feel free to submit your projects to anyone of the open tracks: Presentations, workshops, concerts, PikselSavers and installations.

We apologize for the short time to present the applications. Deadline is 1st of September.
Please use the online submit form at: pretalx.com/piksel21

Workshop Hotglue by Danja vasiliev and Agnes P.

NOTE: The workshop will be hosted in NOVEMBER. Dates will be updated.

Building decentralized websites using Beaker and Dat is fun - and a great, hands-on way to learn about the otherwise hidden structures and exchanges 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.

In a workshop specifically for children and other "outsiders", a modified version of "Hotglue" is used to build decentralized sites together and interlink them.

Hotglue is a FOSS "What you see is what you get" editor for the web. Created in 2010, it currently uses files on the server it is installed to hold the users' data. A to-be-created modified branch of "Hotglue" would instead work on top of the Dat ecosystem - forgoing the need to be running a server altogether.

Type: workshop
Length: 2-3h
Language: english
Additional considerations: max. 12 participants

Session Objective
learn how Dat & Beaker are different from your regular website
build decentralized websites using Hotglue
interlink our decentralized websites

Material and Technical Requirements
Presenter materials: WiFi
Participant materials: Laptops

Vil du lage en t-skjorte med lys som blinker når noen gir deg et klapp på skulderen? Eller en veske som lyser opp når den blir for tung? Går det egentlig an å bygge elektroniske kretser med nål og tråd? Eller strikke en sensor? Et introduksjonskurs for alle aldre i elektronisk tekstil og hvordan man kan designe egne enkle kretser.

Workshop SelfHosted by Critical Engineering Working Group

NOTE: The workshop will be hosted in NOVEMBER. Dates will be updated.

Decentralise! This 4 hours walks participants through the process of setting up their very own server on the Internet, complete with webmail, cloud, VPN, gallery and website services, scalable to hundreds or thousands of users.
Those interested in serving from home can bring in a PC to wipe and re-purpose as a low-bandwidth server on the Internet. Others wanting a high-traffic, media-rich solution will be encouraged to choose and register a geographically-local server package in class such that they can be guided through a complete install (typical monthly fees are 5 to 15 EUR).

Good server-side security practices are covered, from disk-encryption to password-management and firewalling. The basics of the UNIX command line are also taught such that participants can securely log into their server and administer it regardless of their physical location. It takes just one in a community to give the gift of high-quality, low-carbon Internet infrastructure - to free yourself and others from centralised and privacy-eroding services (like GMail, DropBox and Flickr).

No prior experience is necessary, although attention to detail and note-taking skills are important.

Piksel Festival 2021

Piksel is glad to announce a special collaboration program with the Critical Engineers Working Group within the next 3 years. As a result, Piksel will host several exhibitions, workshops, and presentations led by CE components. The program will be developed within the Piksel Festival and Piksel Fest Spill activities along the years 2021-2023. Starting in November with an exhibition and 3 workshops. Stay tuned!

In 2011, a group of artists and engineers published the “Critical Engineering Manifesto”, since translated into 18 languages. Around the manifesto, originally written by Julian Oliver, Gordan Savičić and Danja Vasiliev, gathered a larger group – the Critical Engineering Working Group – now including also Sarah Grant, Bengt Sjölén and Joana Moll.

Critical Engineers Working Group exhibition “Decoding Black Magic. Interventions in Infrastructure” will take place from the 15th of November to 12th of December 2021, showing well known artworks plus new works in progress by the artists Bengt Sjölén and Danja Vasiliev.
