# DIY lo-fi/hi-fi performances and installations
PikseliÄHKY // pixelACHE is an international
laboratory for creative experimenting with audiovisual technologies.
After our successful event in Helsinki, the festival is arriving
to New York and Montreal. The events consists of audiovisual performances,
interactive cinema screenings and an exhibition of media art projects.
Most of the featured artists are coming from Helsinki, the hometown
of pixelACHE. They present the fringe of the Finnish media art scene,
emerging artists and yet-to-be-discovered art forms. The events
also include like-minded artists from Stockholm, New York and Montreal.
Many of the projects are adventurous experiments and collaborations,
especially put together for the festival. The theme for this year's
edition is the art of VJ'ing, mixing and manipulating video material
in a live performance situation.
The Montreal event is the opening of the new premises of Montreal
based Society for Arts and Technology (SAT),
a transdisciplinary centre dedicated to the creation, dissemination
and conservation of digital culture. SAT is non-profit organization
founded in 1996 by several organisers of the ISEA95 Montreal symposium.
In two weeks SAT will relocate at its own permanent address on Saint-Laurent
Boulevard: a cafe / documentation center and a multipurpose presentation
space on 1 100 square meters (over 3 000 sqm in total).
PikseliÄHKY // pixelACHE laboratory series is organised by non-profit
PixelACHE Montreal is created in collaboration with SAT.
The event is supported by Finnish
Embassy in Canada, Olento,
AVEK, and Amfibio.
