[…] We have to get to know the area better, meet people, see places and venues, get a feel for the culture and politics of the region. I also have to further develop the concept and a guiding idea for such an event, both in terms of formats, possible institutions and people involved, and as a theme.

Rapport fra Pixelache, Helsinki

"Extracts of local distances" (Frederic Gmeiner, Torsten Posselt, Benjamin Maus)

Pixelache Helsinki er en festival for elektronisk kunst og subkulturer, arrangert for niende gang i 2011. Festivalen ble holdt på øya Soumenlinna utenfor Helsinki fra 10 til 13 mars. I tillegg til festivalprogrammet, med seminarer, utstillinger, workshops, konserter og diskusjoner, ble det arrangert to «profesjonelle» workshops i dagene før festivalen, «M.A.R.I.N environmental sensors and sensor networks in media art» og «Hackteria». Festivalens viktigste offisielle undertema var energi, selvom ekologi/biologi og sosiale strukturer var tema som for meg var mer synlige.
