WELCOME TO the 15th Edition of the PIKSEL FESTIVAL!
Piksel is an annual festival for artists and developers working with
free/open source software, hardware and art in Bergen.

We Take EmoCoin! The Piksel17 festival slogan points out to the new
capital: our emotions. Emotions has become the new coin. Emotions can
be measured, monitored and monetized in almost real time. Together with
our use of social networks, technology is also investing in bio-sensing
the body to collect our bio-data. So, we ourselves with our public
online behaviour and our stored bio-signals, visualized and interfaced,
create a direct link between emotions and money.

PIKSEL17 – We Take EmoCoin!

PIKSEL17 – We Take EmoCoin! is devoted to show a series of artistic
works, performances, workshops and presentations dealing with DIY
A-Life (artificial life), DIY electronic and audiovisual artworks, and

Piksel KidZ Lab
From 6th of November, Piksel Studio 207 will host the Autumn School
Piksel KidZ Lab. Three workshops: Hello plants , Water talking! and
Sonorartec to explore the urban and natural environment. Kids build
small electronic sound devices, marine bioart sensors, and chips to
communicate with the plants.

Check our website! Streams of the performances! (16th-18th from 20:00
