Protesting With Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez is exhibiting at this year’s NEoN digital arts festival as part of the RE:MAKE/RE:SIST group show curated by Weave by Abertay. His piece Echo Youth uses augmented reality to create mass demonstration scenes, using placards made by young people. We talked to him ahead of the exhibition. What draws you to Augmented Reality?

Extinction Rebellion & Dundee City Council

As NEoN’s theme this year is React we’ve been looking at some ways that ordinary people in Dundee are reacting to global political issues like climate change. After an intervention from the local branch of Extinction Rebellion, Dundee City Council agreed to declare a state of Climate Emergency at a meeting on Monday 24 June.
