Event Dates: november 15-18 2007

Piksel is an international event for artists and developers working with open source audiovisual software, hardware & art. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (BEK) and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of FLOSS & art.

This years event – Piksel07 – continues the exploration of free/libre and open source audiovisual code and it’s myriad of expressions, and also investigates further the open hardware theme introduced at Piksel06.
