I thought I would forward this just in case someone may be interested.
 Looks like an interesting call for work.

**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,
invisible exploration, ghosted computation...

programmed by and running on free and open source software and/or open/DIY

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

Innovative DIY hardware and audiovisual software tools or software art
released under an open licence.

<<<<<<  Deadline - august 15. 2008 >>>>>>

Please use the online submit form at:

or send documentation material - preferably as a URL to online
documentation with images/video to piksel08 [AT] piksel [DOT] no



**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.
