The Pixelache 20 year Anniversary Party is an experiment on active participation that aims to transform voyeuristic engagement into a sense of agency, both on site and for remote participants as well. Through playful and facilitated experiences, partygoers are able to influence, interact with and impact the shared environments. In this sense, the participant has agency on how to interact and contribute to the space. The idea is to celebrate connections, community and cooperation that have been at the heart of Pixelache’s activities throughout its history and will be far into the future.
VJ culture has been an important part of the history and development of Pixelache. To experience and share VJing as a contemporary art form, artists Antti Ahonen and Jenna Jauhiainen are constructing an archive of visual material from the 20 years of Pixelache that partygoers can control and play with. The ideal is to create a wearable controller which takes VJing from behind the decks to the dancefloor, creating a participatory experience emphasizing sharing and caring.
