**Piksel08: code dreams
december 4-7 2008
Bergen, Norway

How does code dream? What are the dreams of code?

Piksel08 examines the other side of code, an alternative side to a hard-coded
reality of work and play. Open hardware and free software project a utopic
vision, yet exist within economies of capital, the dream factory of
mainstream technology. Within the chance meeting of sewing machine and
umbrella on the dissecting table, hardware and software are flattened.

Piksel08: code dreams explores the dreams of this soft machine; bachelors
coding for pleasure, reverse engineering paranoiac constructs of the real,
automatic coding practice, soft hardware, and everyday magic.


**open call:

1. Installations

Projects related to the code dreams theme including but not restricted to:
reverse engineering, soft hardware, code poetry, novel instruction sets,

2. Audiovisual performance

Live art realised by the use of free and open source software. We specially
encourage live coding and DIY hardware projects to apply.

3. Software/Hardware

**real code

real.co.[de][re] actively explores code which has strong effects on the real,
constructing the world through prediction and description. The twelve hour
real.co.[de][re] session will attempt the active construction of a working
code model (of any form) which addresses a flattening of the distinction
between software and hardware, to resolve a new political reference for real
core code.

**abstract code

Abstract code is software whose results can be invisible, a software
implementing different layers of action at the same time.
Abstract code is a connection to parallel worlds, a poetic formula dealing
with outer forces. Code is art, its action is subtile, effective, magic.

procedural text

maledictions, oracles, iambi, hymn, formula, refrains, hypnotic sentences,
prayers, and other.
