Piksel[2] is an annual event for artists and developers working with 
free/libre and open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part 
festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for 
Electronic Arts (BEK)[3] 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
of open source. 

The development, and therefore use, of digital technology today is mainly

controlled by multinational corporations. Despite the prospects of
expanding the means of artistic expression, the commercial demands of the

software industries severely limit them instead. Piksel is focusing on
open source movement as a strategy for regaining artistic control of the

technology, but also a means to bring attention to the close connections

between art, politics, technology and economy
