Camp Pixelache 2012
We are organising a more compact edition of Pixelache Helsinki Festival called 'Camp Pixelache' during on 11-12 May 2012, based on previous Camp Pixelache experiments. Camp Pixelache 2012 is designed around one main unconference day on Saturday 12.5, with an overarching theme of “Do It With Others” (D.I.W.O.).
We are calling out for further short presentations (5-15mins) on the main and sub-themes; as well as for demos to join the Open Design stalls. The call for presentations is open until the Camp day (12.5) and The call for demos is open until 27.4.2012
This year's Camp Pixelache opens on Friday 11 May with a keynote lecture by invited speaker Vinay Gupta (The Bucky-Gandhi Design Institution). Gupta is one of the world’s leading thinkers on infrastructure theory and managing geopoltical risks as well as an environmentalist and a sustainability activist.
Camp Pixelache on 12.5. will be organised around the main theme Do it with Others (D.I.W.O.) and three pre-determined sub-themes. Each has a plenary presentation; of which the speaker will also be the facilitator of other participants’ contribution to the theme, according to the BarCamp model. In addition to this, there will also be demo exhibition of various open design, trashlab and hacklab projects.
For Pixelache club, we'll have a pair of gentlemen leading you through the grey blocks of Helsinki, deep into the gnostic cave known as bar Dubrovnik. Before midnight, the most prominent tri-lingual Finnish post-electro duo, Wurm, will take care of further copulations. The rest of the night belonds to Sounds Like Work team. They will duet on the wheels, tapes, projectors and trackpads of steel, letting you do the dirty work on the dancefloor.
