Oh wow, it’s been almost a year since an update… Guess we’ve been busy on different projects – but more Pivilion stuff is on the way – we’ll be visiting Akademie Schloss Solitude (where this project was first conceived) next year and doing a Pivilion-based research in collaboration with multiple international artists.
Right now we’re doing some art on the darknet (because that’s what we do here :)), as part of The Wrong — New Digital Art Biennale, collaborating (again) with lots of wonderful artists from around the world, and all of it hosted on Pivilions. 🙂
Be sure to check it out!

A bit of background in plain English

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.
