PixelACHE

  1. This last part of the seminar was held in different space, where the light and acoustic conditions weren't so optimal for video. Apologies.

    The ‘Alternative Economy Cultures’ (alt.econ.cult) programme on April 3rd & 5th, brought together leading international and Finnish thinkers, cultural practitioners and activists, to present alternative economic visions, during Pixelache Helsinki Festival 2009.

    The seminar aimed to tackle not just the financial, but the social, cultural, institutional, human, material, emotional and intellectual forms of capital. Not just about individual gain, boosting, balancing or bail-outs, but common good, peer-to-peer, shared wealth and appropriate reward for effort involved.

    The discussion-based workshop about peer-fundraising brought together artists, researchers and business representatives interested in P2P funding models. Focusing upon emerging practices and related topics, it also raised the topic: Can the crowd-sourcing phenomena be applied to support alternative cultural events in Finland?

    The programme was initiated and organised by artist-researcher Andrew Gryf Paterson (independent / agryfp.info / Medialab TaiK), in cooperation with Marita Muukkonen & Ivor Stodolsky of Perpetuum Mobilε (perpetualmobile.org) and Roope Mokka of Demos Helsinki (demos.fi). We aimed to offer a new strand to the Pixelache Network discourse.

  2. Tripping Through Runtime by Valentina Vuksic (CH)

    Acoustic science fiction trips through the magnetic spheres of laptop motherboards

    A collection of elderly laptops is being examined via magnetic pickup microphones. The microphones transform the magnetic waves around the various electronic parts of the computers. Each action upon the laptops can be sensually experienced through a broad range of layered sounds. Already plugging the power and booting up an operating system reveals an own small-scale universe of sounds and provides insight into the complex spare room emerging between hard- and software. This space is being explored and further modelled by triggering actions on purpose. System analysis tools, stress tests and custom c-programs shall bring the characteristics of each machine into the limelight. „Tripping Through Runtime“ is a long-term study, diving into the invisible interrelationships of hard and soft computer matters by sensual means. The project aims at provoking and detecting specific behaviour of individual computer components in match with adequate software pieces. The microphone demonstrations are part of the first experiments to become acquainted with the hardware components.
