Open Call: 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. The main venue for the event is Arbis, the Swedish-language adult education centre located close to the Finnish National Museum, in central Helsinki.

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.). How can artists, makers, cultural producers, researchers and activists work collaboratively with each other and audiences, to create new co-production models for artefacts/events with sustainability as the core goal? Within the Arbis venue there will also be demo stalls of various maker, open design, trashlab and hacklab projects.

Several other events will be organised around this main presentation/seminar day: On the Friday evening before confirmed keynote by Vinay Gupta (Bucky-Ghandi Design Institute, IE/UK); Saturday night club event at Dubrovnik club organised by Kimmo Modig; Plus several workshops before and after (including for example 'Hexayurt Sauna Talkoot' construction work-party, and 'The Art of Gathering Environmental Data' discussion-workshop); Lastly there will also be learner-in-residence Melinda Sipos (Kitchen Budapest, HU) for a 1 week period around the festival.

Although the Camp day of 12.5. will be organised around the main D.I.W.O. theme, there are also several pre-determined sub-themes, listed below. Each has a plenary presentation; of which the speaker will also be the facilitator of other participants' contributions to the theme.

One of the world's leading thinkers on infrastructure theory, state failure solutions, and managing global system risks including poverty/development and the environmental crisis. Gupta works at both the theoretical level, building models and mapping tools like Simple Critical Infrastructure Maps (used by US DOD) and at the completely practical level, where I am best known as the designer of the hexayurt, an award-winning replacement for the disaster relief tent which provides shelter at 20% the cost of a tent.
