"Pixelache Helsinki is a transdisciplinary platform for experimental art, design, research and activism. Amongst our fields of interest are: experimental interaction and electronics; renewable energy production/use; bioarts and art-science culture; grassroot organising and networks; politics and economics of media/technology; alternative economic cultures; VJ culture and audiovisual performances; media literacy and engaging environmental issues. The name of Pixelache was found in an article that predicted new words which we would need in future. The word ‘pixelache’ (similar to ‘headache’) was supposed to describe the feeling that results from an overdose of digital media content. This overdose can happen easily if the content is too monotonic – which is the case if standards, formats, tools and design principles converge to a narrow set of options. Pixelache wants to challenge mainstream standards and conventions, not only related to media and technology, but in the contemporary society in general. Pixelache Helsinki is coordinated by non-profit organisation Piknik Frequency." ‎- silpol
