xxxxx call 2007

xxxxx call for participation in a speculative 12 hour life coding
event (organising hardware and software) to be held in Mid-November
as part of the Piksel festival in Bergen, Norway:

http://www.piksel.no/

Deadline for email submission: July 31st 12AM [midnight]

Life coding is a mapping of the descriptive means of hardware and
programming onto the world. In this instance it includes the invention
and construction of models and language to actively describe and code
the event; instructing, structuring, re-structuring and constructing
the 12 hours. Life coding is obviously influenced by the existence of
programming, fiction, scripting and execution.

Participation is not limited to potential forms including:

-	      performative presentations

-	      advanced participatory workshops

-	      actions

-	      interventions

The above will be assembled into shifts which move between hardware,
interface and (life) code. Proposals should suggest which shift would
be suitable. Proposed topics for shifts include open hardware in
relation to control, the world as interface, material as question of
substance (soft/hard), and the relation of technology, code and
pornography.

Please submit an introduction to your area of research/practise as
well as examples of projects, performances, texts, proposals for
advanced participatory workshops, performative presentations,
actions, interactions, interventions and email your entry to:

m {AT} 1010.org

Further information on the event:

xxxxx [2007] is proposed and wilfully structured as a 12 hour life
coding event within the context of previous xxxxx activities (Crash
2005, xxxxx 2006), and influenced by Plenum (collaboration with KOP,
2006).

xxxxx [2007] will exist as a major, inspired durational, performative
event allowing for exchange and construction between invited
international participants who truly exist on the bleeding edge of
what could be termed contemporary Crash culture.

xxxxx [2007] expands software and hardware with a wilful emphasis on
construction, an interface between theory and the active entry of
making' in the world.

xxxxx [2007] as event manifests a free software-led, coded structure
of self-organisation, and unique working groups. Although some of
these events will be ongoing (for example several working groups, and
background material), the 12 hours will be assembled by way of
shifts.
