This time I’ll talk a bit about the technology behind Pivilion.
Why would one need a small battery-powered device that can host image galleries from any place in the world with an available WiFi Internet connection?
The idea came to life during Dina’s residency in net.cube at G-MK in Zagreb. She had her own web project (probably down after the event) that required hosting on a local network during a presentation. The Raspberry Pi seemed ideal for the project. We wanted to make the project accessible from the Internet and for that we needed to circumvent closed incoming ports that disallowed us from running services from inside the gallery. Tor hidden services pretty much do that out-of-the box. The rest seemed logical – I powered up one of hacklab01’s RPis and first made it a web server. Then installed Tor and set it up – the whole thing just worked and the setup didn’t take up much time at all.
