NEoN Digital Arts Festival

Across the City of Dundee

7th – 12th November 2017 

For 2017 NEoN Digital Arts will expand on it being Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, and through its arts programme will unveil hidden histories using the current (and controversial) practice of ‘media archaeology’. Media archaeologists uncover and reconsider the obsolete, persistent, and hidden material cultures of the technological age – from big data software algorithms to tiny silicon chips. NEoN proposes we understand artists as future media archaeologists, as recorders of our current information-based society, and as time-travellers highlighting the continued relevance of our long past. Join us as we dig for the digital, brush the dirt off the non-material, and excavate the internet.
