THEME 2004: AUDIOVISUAL ARCHITECTURE
PixelACHE is an annual festival of electronic art, design and technology. The theme for this year is Audiovisual architecture, experimenting with the border between the digital domain and the physical world.
PixelACHE Festival 2004 goes on for 10 days, starting in Stockholm and continuing in Helsinki.
PixelACHE 2004 will premiere Gray Zone: Weathermatrix, an audiovisual performance by the Finnish artist/musician group CNCD. The performance utilizes a vast amount of material gathered from a network of weather surveillance cameras around Finland. The material is used to create journeys across different weathers and seasons.”
