Pixel 08, opening day
Piksel 08 began Thursday with exhibitions and live events all over the town. Being one who is above average afraid of working with electrickery, it was quite fun to watch data freaks as close as this. I attended exhibition openings at Lydgalleriet (The Sound Gallery) and Galleri Volt, and opening and live events at Scene USF. Not only were the opening speeches by festival boss Gisle Frøysland and Henning Warloe (commisioner for cultural affairs in Bergen), but Austria's new ambassador in Norway also had his say!
