PIKSEL17 We Take EmoCoin! The 15th annual Piksel Festival for Electronic Art and Free Technologies

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  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 concerts.

Piksel is an annual festival for artists and developers working with free and open source software, hardware and art. The festival is a member of the Pixelache network of electronic art festivals – pixelache.ac – and one of the nodes in the Production Network for Electronic Art in Norway – PNEK
