xxxxx_at_piksel, 13-14 October, Cinemateket USF, Bergen, Norway

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

xxxxx_at_piksel will take place 11am to 3pm 13 October, 11am to 5pm 14 October at Cinemateket USF, Bergen, Norway as a part of the Piksel06 festival
