Exhibition, conference, camp and much more at Pixelache

without comments

 

Pixelache Festival 2013 with its theme of Facing North Facing South profiles the work of the Bricolabs mailing list, an independent and dynamic network of people absorbed with sharing, DIY, open source software, hardware and environmental sustainability living in various localities across the world whose online and offline exchange of heterogeneous practices and ideas have driven the network since its formation in 2006.

Bricolabs’ Exhibition

Where: Suvilahti ‘Square’ (location to be confirmed), free entrance!
Opening: Thursday 16.5. at 19.00
Exhibition dates: 17.-26.5., from Wednesday to Sunday 13.00 – 18.00

Three shipping containers will host workshops and artworks made by various members of Bricolabs: A ‘brico-archive’ corner assembled by Gabriele Asbesto, including diverse documentation on processes, including “how-to’s”, video works, texts and brico-objects; A nearby graffiti wall will provide an evolving open canvas for demonstration and exchange of concepts, ideas and views; An interactive installation – Vjing Nature - created by Ivan Henriques & Kasia Molga and Erik Overmeire will invite us to address inter-connections between sensor technology, data vis and microbiology; In addition, the Sensorium project from Salvador de Bahia will be presented on video. Collaborative curation; visual design: Kruno Jost.

Bricolabs’ Conference

When: Friday 17.5, 10.00 – 19.00

With two decades of mailing lists and related cultural practices, we have seen networks rise, disintegrate, or become rather resilient. Long term contributors to lists like bricolabs may see the network as an affective element that not only enables free sharing of information and concepts, but also expresses degrees of belonging to a hybrid of social relations, sets of idea(l)s and physically bound practice. The idea of network culture also builds on peer to peer collaborative approaches enshrined within free and open software communities.  Since these lists and networks are on one level placeless, if not unbound of places, the question is – belonging where? What kind of ‘bind’ is this affective relationship, and how does it configure place relations, and ultimately, another way of looking at geopolitics? Can networked practices be both grounded in various localities and unbound simultaneously, growing stronger as they mutually configure?

Camp Pixelache in Naissaar 18-19.5

Camp Pixelache 2013 is held on 18-19 May. Except for the keynote lecture planned in advance, typically like at unconferences, the agenda will be created by the attendees at the beginning of the event. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a given topic can claim a time and a space. Our curated themes for the Festival are emerging as Creative Development (North-South, Tallinn-Helsinki & other relations), Virtuality, Resonance, Anti-disciplinarity, Waste, Techno-ecologies, and Control. Welcome to be inspired by these or introduce other topics into the Camp!

We have invited Mary Mellor to give a keynote presentation on Naissaar. Mary Mellor is a Social Science Professor at Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne (UK), who has a long-standing interest in alternative, green and feminist economics. Within the concert hall and related buildings open workshops can also be organised.

Welcome Back Ye Annunaki

without comments

Welcome Back Ye Annunaki is a showcase of works answering the question How would you host an ancient alien? The artists in the exhibition responded to an international call for proposals inspired by Zecharia Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles, a book detailing how the human species originated from extraterrestrial beings. These distant relatives are scheduled to return to the earth in December 2012.

Participating artists have proposed a variety of convivial acts to welcome Annunaki families from the planet Nibiru upon their return visit to earth after a 3,600-year orbit. The projects take a variety of forms, from an intergalactic calling card to a bed away from home, collegial gestures of kindness that reveal the customs that we embrace as human citizens of earth.

Welcome Back Ye Annunaki provides a constructive take on Sitchin’s mythology, one of the many associated with the year 2012. Exhibition is held in Open Space Artist Run Centre (Victoria, Canada), November 16, 2012 – December 21, 2012.

Among many, I am am the one, who has been contacted by Annunaki, many times, sometimes while asleep, sometimes awake. They inform me over and over again of their visit, and I know I have to await for them and clean my temple. I have to await and take care of the temple that will host them. And that temple is me.

Most of us are unaware that Annunaki is/are not of mater, but of spirit, and to host them you do not clean the interior of your house, but interior of your self. One cleans it with rigour, spiritual and mental, in taking out the trash, and taking in the health and beauty.

When Annunaki comes, we greet It to our temple, we let It to ourself, and we carry It where we go, we feed It what we eat, It sleeps when we sleep, It sees what we see. That is why if we host them we have to restrain from bad habits, we have to restrain from manipulative toughs, we have to restrain from hurting ourself and others. When we host It we do it with pleasure and It lives trough us.
