“The 9th edition of the Piksel Festival took place on November 17th-20th 2011 in Bergen, Norway. The festival was subtitled this year as “re:public” for rethinking and redefining public space, both as a concrete physical space, and in a larger social and political context. As previously, through the nine-year history of the festival, Piksel is firmly grounded on free/libre and open source.” (Tuomo Tammenpää)

Deptford.TV was invited to PIKSEL11 to hold a FLOSSTV workshop. Our main tool for this workshop were video receivers that could intercept the data collected by small CCTV video cameras (often placed covertly in shops, offices and other public/private spaces). The workshop introduced participants to Surveillance and CCTV filmmaking where material and images from the Deptford.TV archive were edited to submissions from the Deptford.TV database. Footage taken from Deptford.TV was filmed during a previous TV hacking workshop where participants equipped with CCTV surveillance signal receivers were lead through the city by incoming surveillance camera signals.
