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.

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.

De(con)structing Conformity

without comments

De(con)structing Conformity – video documentation from GentleJunk on Vimeo.

De(con)structing Conformity is performance done during the opening of the exhibition REFLECTION – Ecology of Cultural Landscape on 22nd November 2012. in gallery Scheier, Čakovec, Croatia.
In De(con)structing Conformity Kruno Jošt together with collaborators Maja Kohek and Simon Podlauf destroys an armchair as a symbol of conformity in contemporary society. The armchair represents a passive attitude in an even more passive society where one doesn’t want to lose their armchair while making political moves. It gives us false security and is as such a symbol of power. The de(con)struction of the symbol enables reflection on our own conformity. The question now is how we confront conformity in contemporary society?

CR 4.0 won Artemov 1st prize for locative media competition

without comments

As it is, as it goes, prizes are starting to come in for the work that insisted on taking representative form from participative processes developed beforehand. Its 4th reincarnation happened in slightly different context, most notably in its new terms of negotiating project in the newly formed team. Positions that prizes involve: question of value, ownership, possible marketing strategies, group dynamics according to personal needs and acceptance of needs of others have surfaced at metalevel. CultureRobot became something that could easily be put into broad cultural concept and disseminated in the form it is trough events and festivals.

CultureRobot installation 1.0 and 2.0

without comments

CR installation 2.0 at SESC Sao Jose dos Campos in Brazil followed 1.0 that was installed at HAIP festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia. CultureRobot is interactive installation that rises awareness about maps, open spaces and borders. It invites visitors/users/participators to rearrange, open or close borders and thus interact with the map inhabitants – CultureRobot (simple robots powered by batteries, moving randomly on the map) allowing them to consume more or less of different cultural aspects. CR is interactive installation made to raise awareness of social and political sphere that is affecting autonomous cultural sphere, synergies and correspondences in geo-techno-socio-political topology.
