The development and therefore use of digital technology today is mainly
controlled by multinational corporations. Despite the prospects of
technology expanding the means of artistic expression the commercial
demands of the software industries severely limit them instead. Piksel is
focusing on the open source movement as a strategy for regaining artistic
control of the technology but also a means to bring attention the close
connections between art politics technology and economy.
One of the results of the past Piksel events is the initiation of the Piksel
Video Framework for ’interoperability between various free software
applications dealing with video manipulation techniques’3.
Piksel05 will also feature the release of the Piksel LiveCD4 a Linux
distribution containing the software used and developed at Piksel. The
package contains a suite of innovative audiovisual and artistic software
free video plugins and documentation from the past Piksel events.
